Spirit of Balanchine Villella’s Miami City Ballet performs classic pieces tonight By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Even non-ballet aficionados have heard of George Balanchine, who is widely considered the greatest choreographer in dance history. Now you can feel his spirit, when the Miami City Ballet makes its debut in Vail tonight at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. The ballet will perform a trio of Balanchine classics — “Tarantella,” “The Four Temperaments” and “Serenade.” “It’s such a pleasure to welcome Miami City Ballet to Vail for the first time,” said Festival Artistic Director Damian Woetzel. “Their all-Balanchine program on Saturday night will feature masterpieces never before seen in Vail, and the spectacular dancers of this acclaimed company are going to thrill our audiences.”



The stock market’s best July in 20 years is giving investors reason for hope about the economy. Investors are placing big bets that the ability of companies to squeeze out surprise profits means the longest recession since World War II is finally easing its grip. But even as earnings and some economic reports suggest the economy is strengthening, the stock rally means investors will pay a bigger price if they are wrong. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 17.15, or 0.2 percent, to 9,171.61. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 0.73, or 0.1 percent, to 987.48. The Nasdaq composite index fell 5.80, or 0.3 percent, to 1,978.50.

The Miami dancers are directed by Edward Villella, who was the childhood inspiration to Woetzel as he danced a variety of roles at the New York City Ballet from 1957 to 1975. Woetzel later followed in Villella’s footsteps, performing many of his role model’s same roles when he joined the New York City Ballet. Woetzel retired last year as the New York City Ballet’s principal dancer “He made the world safe for male dancers in America,” Woetzel told The Denver Post recently about Vil[See MIAMI CITY BALLET TONIGHT, page 12] RIGHT: Miami City Ballet dancers perform Twyla Tharp’s “In the Upper Room.” Tonight, the ballet will perform George Balanchine classics “Tarantella,” “The Four Temptations” and “Serenade” at the Ford Ampitheatre in Vail as part of the Vail International Dance Festival.

Leisure travel on the rise?

Leisure travel may be finally going up again. This according to Jim Kauffman, executive vice president of Marriott Lodging’s western region of the United States. Kaufman was part of a panel of five speakers at Thursday’s Vail Valley Business Forum, presented by the Vail Valley Partnership. “Leisure travel has been on the rise the last six weeks,” said Kauffman, “after dropping like a stone for at least the last six months.” Meanwhile banks have to be right 99.6 percent of the time, and that’s why they’re so conservative, especially now, said John Ikard, president and chief executive officer of FirstBank Holding Co. “I’m betting on you. You put your money into your business,” Ikard told the assembled crowd. “You guys

made us look really good the last couple of years.” Unemployment in Colorado is currently at 7.6 percent, 2 percent lower than the national average, said Don Elliman, chief operating officer for the State of Colorado. But government budget cuts are still not fun. “We’re making government smaller, which is good news to a lot of people, but remember that a large amount of that burden will be placed on those who can least afford it,” said Elliman, who has a home in Vail and visits frequently. Amid his efforts to make government smaller, his title was recently changed from Director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade to the state of Colorado’s “Chief Operating Officer,” a title usually applied to positions in the private sector. Also discussed at the forum were the revenues at the Denver Newspaper Agency, which have dropped from $400 million three years ago to $200 million now. The company, which publishes the Denver Post, went from employing 3,300 to 1,300 people. “We’re in a position to grow,” CEO Jerry Grilly said. The company owns 80 Web sites.

Have your say about new Lionshead transit center Open house Tuesday in Vail Town Hall main hallway By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Designers want your help to decide what a new Lionshead transit center should look like. They’ll hold an open house at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the main hallway of the Vail Town Hall at 75 S. Frontage Road to show off their progress and get public input. While no decisions have been made yet, a new bus bay area and a “fly-over� pedestrian bridge from the existing Lionshead parking garage into Lionshead have featured prominently in discussions about what a new transit center should look like. Elected town officials previously discussed building a $19 million transit center on the so-called North Day Lot, a surface parking lot on the corner of West Lionshead Circle and the South Frontage Road. That plan was scrapped following opposition from neighbors. Vail Resorts is slated to build a price-restricted rental housing complex on the site that will include some skier drop-off spots and other transit-related pieces, however. Spending $350,000 for studies The town expects to spend as much as $350,000 for three studies about a new transit center. The re-do could be paid for with tax-increment financing, a commonly used government financing measure in which the in-

crease in property taxes from development goes to pay for corresponding infrastructure. Town officials also have as much as $2.5 million in federal grant money set aside to pay for the project. At the same time, Texas-based developer Open Hospitality Group-Hillwood Capital is negotiating with the town for the right to redevelop the parking structure to include two luxury hotels and other amenities in the future. If the town has to make capital improvements to the garage, the developer may offer to reimburse them in the future as well, said Mark Masinter, a spokesman for the development group. Great guest experience? “It’s not an unfair concept to think if the town of Vail has to make capital improvements to the garage to maintain an acceptable guest experience, then they should,� Masinter said. The town asked Masinter to pay $100,000 every six months to keep his option open to build. In addition, Open Hospitality-Hillwood may pay up to $300,000 more to extend the agreement through the end of 2011, according to a letter between the town and Masinter. The Dallas development company, chaired by Ross Perot Jr., wants to build a W Hotel, a St. Regis Hotel, condos, stores, restaurants and more public parking.

Eagle County inmates to get new health care Mountaineer Staff Report The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office (ECSO) has accepted Correctional Healthcare Management (CHM) as their medical service provider for detention center inmates. CHM will begin providing a full range of on-site medical services beginning September 1, 2009. The decision to contract an outside medical provider was made after a detailed review of the proposal. The Sheriff, County Attorney, Board of County Commissioners, and the former Public Health

Manager for the county concurred that contracting medical services to CHM, an entity specializing in the provision of medical care within a correctional facility is the right decision at this time. The new health care management provider will provide on-site medical treatment which is a benefit to the public as well as those who are behind bars. “Anytime that you take an inmate out of a secure facility and transport them to an outside medical provider there is an inherent risk to the public’s safety,� Eagle County Jail Admin-

5% 50

istrator Bill Kaufman. The ECSO is committed to the quality and cost-effective care as our inmate population continues to increase. The reduction in liability, cost containment, and flexibility in providers makes the proposal very attractive to the ECSO. CHM has over 12 years experience providing medical and behavioral health care services focusing exclusively on correctional care. CHM currently serves 70 facilities in 10 states – including 34 facilities in Colorado.

From left developer Rob Verratti, Jeff Bennett, Maxi Hepfer, and development team CEO Christiane Hepfer break ground on the new MacHatten Creek Ranch development in Gypsum.

New single family project going up in Gypsum MacHatten Creek Ranch is an extension of popular Buckhorn Valley By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Buckhorn Valley is bucking the real estate trend and expanding this summer with its MacHatten Creek Ranch project. Mesa Development, an Eagle County company, broke ground on the new neighborhood of single family homes. “We are so happy to be able to move forward with this project and provide community housing that is high quality and yet affordable without the constraints of deed restrictions,� said Christiane Hepfer, future home owner at MacHatten Creek Ranch and CEO of the BVD development. Mesa Development is the first to break ground this summer on new single-family homes in the Vail Valley

and Garfield County, said Hepfer. The company partnered with their joint venture partner, ER-Bau USA, Inc., a German-owned residential builder. It’s a local project from beginning to end, and it’s being built by locals, said Hepfer. “Because MacHatten Creek Ranch is a project for the community, not just for home buyers but also for builders, we are concentrating on all construction being completed by local development companies,� she said. Homes start at $425,000 and custom upgrades precompletion are available. They’re single family homes with three bedrooms and two and a half baths. Mesa will launch MacHatten Creek Ranch with two homes. There are no deed restrictions and Mesa is helping with loan qualification. Mesa is building a neighborhood daycare center and park. “It really is the chance of a lifetime and I doubt we will see prices for homes and single family lots in this price range again, at least not anytime soon. I can’t wait to move in myself,� Hepfer said. For more information, call Hepfer at 524-5058, or go to

More home buyers on look out this summer

Vail Mountaineer

Second to None

Number of showings, transactions on the rise By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Area Realtors are busy this summer. Anyone who hasn’t had his head under a rock in the last six months knows that the number of real estate transactions in the valley are down from last year’s record year. But the number of potential buyers looking around has definitely picked up — and they’re ready to make deals, says Kathy Iverson, one of the county’s top selling Realtors. “I’m pretty busy. This is very typical for this time of year,” Iverson said. “Buyers are coming to get a deal, and they’re coming to get value. They will search it out until they find it.” County real estate statistics bear out what Iverson is seeing with her clients, says Trevor Theelke, an analyst at Land Title Guarantee Co. May is busier than April was, which was busier than March, he says. “Volume is increasing as well, so hopefully it stays that way,” Theelke said. “We’re moving up the ladder.” May was best month so far this year May saw 79 transactions, 30 percent more than the

previous best month this year, with an average sales price of almost $900,000, according to Land Title statistics. There was one sale over $3 million, a ski-in, ski-out property at the Lodge at Vail Chalets above the Eagle Bahn gondola that sold for $15.95 million. Statistics usually lag the market by at least a month. Sales prices can be as much as 20-25 percent lower than they were on similar properties last year, however, Iverson said. “That’s what I hear. It’s a buyer’s market, and sellers have to decide, ‘Do I wait?’” Iverson said. Several properties have sold in Cordillera, others have sold in Arrowhead, Iverson said. Most of the deals are still cash deals, she said. “I’m also busy talking to sellers. They’re calling me all the time and asking how long it will take to sell,” Iverson said. “This is first time in my career that I don’t know where it’s going to end up.” In May, 42 percent of all transactions sold for less than $500,000, Theelke said. Multi-family homes — meaning condominiums and townhouses — continued to lead sales, with 34 selling in May at an average sales price of more than $1.2 million. Vail Village had the highest average sales price — driven by the Chalet sale — more than $5 million.

Showing 4-H animals is a little like a beauty pageant, except the kids and their animals are actually useful. Dozens of kids showed all kinds of animals at this week’s 70th annual Eagle County Fair and Rodeo and no one wished for world peace. There’s something right with the world when one of the Valley’s first families is winning livestock competitions. It’s a good week to be a Borah. Wyatt Borah, 11, had the Grand Champion steer and sister Kaitlyn, 9, had the Reserve Grand Champion. The day before, they were reversed as Kaitlyn won Grand Champion pig and Wyatt was Reserve Grand Champion. Somewhere in there, Wyatt had the Reserve Grand Champion sheep. The ribbons and trophies came Thursday and Friday. The payoff for all the 4-H kids is this afternoon with the Junior Livestock Auction. It starts at 2 p.m. in the Eagle River Center and they need bidders. If you’re a buyer, they’ll feed you. Livestock judges are looking for the same thing in a steer that football coaches look for in a linebacker: big, strong, square, well muscled and not too much fat. The better it looks on the hoof, the better it’ll look on your plate. This is what most of us see, but don’t think for a second that that’s all there is. Kids and animals mate for life, at least the life of the animals. The work started almost a year ago when they picked their steers. It’s not an exact science, raising steers. You don’t really know how they’ll turn out, but you know that if you don’t work at it, they’ll turn out all wrong. It’s one of those life lessons that 4-H teaches so well. Some kids pick their animals out of a herd, but these days they’re more often purchased from someone who breeds what’s called “club cattle,” as in 4-H Club. “If you breed a grand champion steer, the word spreads and your business picks right up,” said Barbara Zimmerman, in Eagle for Friday’s steer show. The animals get a number tattooed inside their ear, along with an ear tag. That keeps the unscrupulous among us from swapping an animal that probably won’t win, for one that might. Kids are not required to get tattoos, despite what some might tell their parents. That’s their animal, for better or worse. The kids take classes on how all this is supposed to be done. The older kids also help the younger kids. “We work at it about six hours a day,” said Kaitlyn. Their dad, Jake, said the kids spend three hours in the

Wyatt and Kaitlyn Borah have had a great week at this week’s 70th Annual Eagle County Fair and Rodeo. They’ve been Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion with their steers and pigs, and Wyatt had the Reserve Grand Champion sheep. They and dozens of other 4-H kids will be selling their animals at this afternoon’s Junior Livestock Auction. The auction starts at 2 p.m. in the Eagle River Center and buyers get a free barbecue.

morning and three hours at night. The Borahs are typical parents. They’re in the barn with the kids most of the time, and they haul their kids to shows all over the state, preparing for this week’s Fair. Ask Wyatt and Kaitlyn if it’s worth it and the answer is obvious. But if you ask the kids who didn’t win if it was worth it, and they say the same thing – “Yes, it was worth it.” The Borah’s roots run deep in this valley. The patri[See JUNIOR LIVESTOCK, page 10]

Friday, one month after taking office and a week after vowing to fight federal corruption charges against him while remaining on the job. Cammarano, who won a June runoff election and was sworn in on July 1, was snared last week in a sweeping federal corruption probe that resulted in the arrests of 44 people, including rabbis and public officials. The 32-year-old — Hoboken’s youngest mayor — sent a letter to the city clerk on Friday saying his resignation was effective at noon. City Council President Dawn Zimmer entered the city council chamber to a standing ovation and was sworn in moments later as the city’s first female acting mayor. “I apologize to the residents of Hoboken for the disruption and disappointment this case has caused,” Cammarano said in his resignation letter. Cammarano, an election-law attorney, is accused of accepting $25,000 in bribes in exchange for help on a purported high-rise building project in the city. He was the second elected official to resign in the wake of the arrests. Later Friday, Republican Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt of Forked River, became the third to step down.

on Friday, and partly blamed its third-quarter loss of $167 million on that cleanup. Officials also suggested a rate increase could be looming. The nation’s largest public utility said in a filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission that the tab could reach $933 million to $1.2 billion to restore the Kingston, Tenn., community after 5.4 million cubic yards of toxic ash breached a holding pond at a coalfired power plant on Dec. 22. No one was injured, but the spill of millions of tons of ash and sludge swept into a river, damaged two-dozen homes, covered 300 acres, raised health concerns throughout the community and brought congressional attention to the lack of regulation of similar sites around the country. TVA’s latest cleanup estimate is at least $200 million higher than previous calculations and still doesn’t include potential fines, penalties, or the outcome of seven federal lawsuits filed by residents.

Coal ash spill to cost $1.2B, TVA reports 3Q loss

reflects the seriousness of the crime and the duty of society to protect the health and welfare of children. The father, 29-year-old Carl Brent Worthington, could have been sentenced to up to a year in jail. As a special condition of probation, the judge ordered Worthington to choose a pediatrician to provide regular care for his 5-year-old daughter and for the child he and his wife are expecting soon. The jury acquitted her of charges in the girl’s death.

As Oklahoma mining town fades, holdouts give up

Two years ago, Orval “Hoppy” Ray vowed it would take someone meaner than him to make him leave the town where he was born. But now the crusty, 84-year-old former miner is moving out, leaving behind a blighted, ghostly landscape, its soil, water and air poisoned by generations of lead-ore extraction that produced bullets for both world wars. After two heart attacks and a tornado that badly damaged his house, Ray lost whatever fight he had left and decided to accept a government buyout, as nearly all his neighbors in Picher have already done. “You can’t fight City Hall,” said Ray, who worked Picher’s lead mines in the 1940s and, for now, runs a musty pool hall on the main drag. “They’ve got you squeezed seven ways from Sunday.”

By early next year, Picher will be little more than a name on a map. From 20,000 people at its peak and about 1,700 when the buyouts started two or three years ago, about 80 are left. Ray and a few dozen other people who had hoped to make a last stand here changed their minds after a tornado tore through Picher in May 2008, killing six people and leveling more than 100 homes.

Sen. Dodd has prostate cancer, will have surgery

Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd said Friday that he has been diagnosed with an early stage of prostate cancer and will have surgery in early August, but the prognosis is good and the illness will not affect his plans to seek a sixth term next year. He said he plans to have surgery at Memorial SloanKettering Cancer Center in New York shortly after Congress adjourns next week and is “very confident we’re going to come out of this well.” Dodd said he feels fine and expects to return to a full schedule at the end of August. “I’m running for re-election. I’ll be a little leaner, a little meaner, but I’m running,” Dodd told reporters, friends and supporters who gathered at his Hartford office. He later quipped: “I’ll be running without a prostate.” The 65-year-old Democrat is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and is playing a lead role in Congress’ attempt to overhaul the nation’s health care system. Dodd took that role while his close friend, Senate health committee Chairman Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts fights his own battle with brain cancer. Dodd said he has kept his diagnosis quiet for weeks, consulting only with doctors and a few fellow senators who have had prostate cancer. He decided not to tell Kennedy until Thursday because of his own health problems.

Bonuses in the billions for Wall Street… Why not?

Even when their profits dried up and they turned to taxpayers to stay afloat, the nation’s biggest banks kept paying huge bonuses. But much of the money went not to top executives, but to star traders and salesmen, even as the economy battled through the worst recession in a generation. The bonuses — including $1 million or more for each of nearly 4,800 bankers at nine of the largest firms — were paid for 2008. But their revelation this week has renewed criticism of companies relying on government aid. The House of Representatives voted Friday to sharply restrict how Wall Street pays its executives and workers, barring compensation that rewards excessive risk-taking.

“Most of the money doesn’t go to what we usually call executives,” said Alan Johnson of Johnson Associates, a New York compensation consultant to companies including large banks. “It’s going to highly paid production workers.” Senior executives at Wells Fargo & Co. — which lost $43 billion last year — also did not pocket bonuses, even as the firm paid bonuses of at least $1 million to 62 of its employees. The biggest bonus pool was paid out by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., where $8.7 billion was distributed, a sum far larger than the $5.6 billion in earnings the bank reported. More than 1,600 Morgan Chase employees took home bonuses of $1 million or more.

Avoid getting pee-d off at the movies

The mid-movie dash to the restroom can turn us into calculating Usain Bolt wannabes: Ah, this looks like a lull — time to dash. When we return to our seats, we pray the answer to “What did I miss?” isn’t “Darth Vader is really Luke’s father” or “the girlfriend is really a guy.” The Web site can help with such anxious guess work. The site provides recommended opportunities to race to the restroom. It tells you when the action or romance wanes, and gives you a cue (“Baby O.J. is taken from Bruno”) for your exit. The site tells you how long you’ve got and even summarizes what you missed. Since early July, is available as an iPhone app, too. Launched last August, RunPee took off earlier this summer. It’s been one of the season’s runaway hits — a clever idea that has spawned a lot of word-of-mouth from moviegoers. “Helping your bladder enjoy going to the movies as much as you do,” the site boasts. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Sandra Munoz set a record at the Weld County Fair this year with six stalks of corn that towered 15 feet, 6 inches, and now she may set her sights higher. The 17-year-old Munoz, whose family farms near the northern Colorado town of Eaton, may enter her giants in the state fair in Pueblo. Former Colorado State University Extension agent Kathy Rickart says the state fair record is a relatively puny 13 feet, 6 inches. For the record, Munoz is about 5-foot-1. She says she’s not sure why her corn got so tall. She says her parents’ farm was spared from hail that hit their neighbors. The state fair runs Aug. 28-Sept. 7.

stroll through the corrals behind the reviewing stand and he can point out 10 mares that each cost an average of $30,000. Others cost $20,000 or $25,000. Bill Clinton didn’t pay that much for his girls. But like we said, you get what you pay for. Korzak, of course, isn’t Carr’s only stallion. Real Deal is another. He was named the 2005 Bucking Horse of the Year by the Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association. Real Deal’s job is pretty much just like Korzak’s and he, too, is happy in his work. But River Boat Annie just might be Pete’s favorite. He welded her picture to the side of his horse trailer and brought her mama to live with them at the ranch. It’s tough to love a girl more than that. River Boat Annie is a Reserve World Champion bucking horse. She was out on maternity leave most of last winter, and headed back to work a couple months ago. Annie was so happy to be back with the band that her first time out she kicked up her heels, danced and twisted around in mid-air. Pete was thrilled. Annie was thrilled. The cowboy she dropped in the dirt like Britney Spears dumped Kevin Federline? Maybe not so much. How, then, does one train horses and bulls to buck like River Boat Annie and Korzak and Real Deal?

It’s like trying to teach Nancy Pelosi to sing like Aretha Franklin; you can’t do it. “They’re bred to do it,” Gomes patiently explained. When the horses hit about 2 years old, Pete puts mechanical dummies on them to see how they react. If they react badly, that’s good. “If they don’t like to buck, you can’t make them do it,” Gomes said. “If they don’t want to buck anymore, they quit.” A good bucking horse has a

RODEO FINALS TONIGHT they’d all like you to know that it’s a steer they’re roping, not a calf.

Heads and heels In team roping there’s a header and heeler. Trey is a header. His job is to rope the steer – it’s not a calf – in one of three legal ways. If he misses, they’re done. The heeler has to rope both feet. If he ropes one it’s a five second penalty. The steer gets a head start. If you go early, it’s a 10 second penalty. Trey has been doing this since he was old enough to hold the rope.

Some of Borah’s other descendants still live in the valley. You’ll find Monica Jacox along the Colorado River at the mouth of Red Dirt Creek, Jake and his family, and Gypsum resident Terry Davis.

He and Baldwin travel all over the Rocky Mountain West, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nebraska. “I stick close to home,” said Trey. They also do the local rodeos in Beaver Creek, Snowmass and Steamboat Springs. “We practice all the other days,” he said. Echtler and Borrego travel constantly, chasing the dream. “They’re out there all the time,” Trey said. In between rodeos, Trey and Greg run Colorado Fencing, LLC. “We run a fencing business to sup-

The average bull is much shorter, three or four years, tops. “They get the best care in the world, the best feed, the best vets,” said Pete, whose feed bills are more than the gross domestic product of most Third World countries.

port our rodeo habit,” said Trey. “It’s a good thing Colorado Fencing does good work.” In between they’ve been known to knock back a few brews and spin a few tales. They’re still trying to determine the perfect balance between beer and improved performance, Trey said. Their horses, said Trey, are athletes and have to be handled as such. They train, they practice, warm up, compete, cool down. “Keeping the horses in shape is a big part of it, practice and exercise,” said Trey. “You have to keep the horses honest.”

MIAMI CITY BALLET PERFORMS IN VAIL TONIGHT lella. “He made ballet something that was far more acceptable as something a red-blooded American boy might go and do.” Villella’s company of Miami dancers also will perform Sunday as part of the Vail International Music Festival. The ballet corps then heads to the Vilar for a special “UpClose” performance, celebrating Villella, “one of the great heroes of American ballet,” Woetzel said. This evening’s ballet kicks off with Tarantella, originally a folk dance meant to evoke the movements of a person bit by a tarantula spider. Never takes a breath The famous southern Italy dance has inspired a number of different stylized ballets. The Vail piece is set to the music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk, and originally created by Balanchine for Villella and Patricia McBride, his co-star at the New York City Ballet, in 1964. Balanchine’s Tarantella never takes a breather, demanding the greatest swiftness and stamina the human body can muster, especially at high altitude. The Four Temperaments follows, set to the music of Paul Hindemith. Soloists will express the four medieval temperaments for which Balanchine created the piece —melancholic, sanguinic, phlegmatic and choleric. Groups of four women enter the stage throughout the ballet and move as one body, a well-rehearsed feat. Peter Tchaikovsky’s striking Serenade for Strings is

Cavic takes shot at Phelps


DON SJOSTROMAny exterior job above $500

Serb has heard enough about Phelps’ sluggish suit


By Dean Blazier Special to the Mountaineer Milorad Cavic, the man who Michael Phelps beat by one hundredth of a second at the Beijing Olympics, has heard enough of the swimsuit hoopla and decided to give Phelps a verbal zing. Cavic delivered a sarcastic nudge saying swimsuit manufacturer Arena would provide Phelps one of its polyurethane suits “within the hour,” as a gesture to even the playing field. Cavic’s comments, coming after both swimmers easily advanced in Friday morning’s FINA World Championships preliminaries, sets up a high-profile rematch of their memorable race at the Beijing Olympics, which Phelps won by a hundredth of a second on his way to capturing a record eight gold medals. At this year’s world championships, controversy over swimsuits has been brewing thicker than the cloud in Phelps’ bong toke earlier this year. Certain swimsuits will eventually be banned from the world championships, but they’re legal this year. This has become the second biggest news story at the championship behind anything that Michael Phelps does. Cavic, who wears the Arena X-Glide, said the perception that Phelps has no choice except to stick with the Speedo LZR Racer because of sponsorship commitments is “a complete lie.” “I know he’s making a lot of money from Speedo,” Cavic said. “It’s loyalty. But throughout all my experiences, I’ve learned this—free will is a gift with a price tag, and whatever you choose to do you’re going to pay, but how much you’re going to pay is really dependent on you.” “If Mike wants an Arena, he just has to say it,” Cavic said. “If he wants a Jaked and they don’t want to give it to him free, I’ll buy it for him. He has options.” The hot-headed Cavic still thinks he won the 100 fly at the Olympics. Cavic rekindled the issue this week, insisting that he was ahead at the wall but didn’t put

enough pressure on the timing touchpad, so it recorded Phelps as the winner. The timing devices and high-resolution photographs paint a different picture ... Conclusively. Busybody reporters tried to get Phelps to comment, but he hustled through the mixed zone without stopping to speak to reporters. His coach, Bob Bowman, shrugged off Cavic’s comments. To call Cavic and Phelps rivals is similar to calling Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods rivals, but the finals of the 100-meter butterfly Saturday will certainly make for a great match. Phelps and his team captured gold in the Men’s 4x200m Freestyle relay on Friday.

Scotland native shoots record nine at Women’s British, makes hole-in-one Catriona Matthew of Scotland hit a hole in one in a 5-under 67 Friday to share the second-round lead with Giulia Sergas of Italy at the Women’s British Open. Sergas also shot 67 after making five birdies five on the back nine. Both players totaled 3-under 141 at Royal Lytham and St. Annes links course. Matthew eagled the 11th and followed up with an ace on the 12th. She then made four more birdies against a lone bogey for a course-record back nine of 7-under 30. “It was certainly easier than yesterday,” Matthew said, referring to less wind. “This was one of my best nines. It may have been easier but you still have to make shots.” Top-ranked Lorena Ochoa dropped all five shots on the front nine before finishing with a 77 at 8 over. But she’s still certain to make the cut. Paula Creamer shot 74 and Michelle Wie had a 75. Creamer, who made no birdies in her opening 75, had to wait until the 11th hole Friday for her first. —The Associated Press

The SCCA national time trial at the Eagle County Airport runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Avery Cunliffe photo.

Sports car rally speeds to airport SCCA event runs all weekend By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer For guys, there’s only one question: “How fast does it go?” Almost 200 guys and a couple dozen non-guy female types have embarked on a Holy Pilgrimage of Horsepower. They’re at the Eagle County Airport for this weekend’s national time trial solo event, sponsored by the Sports Car Club of America. The FAA spent $20 million to upgrade the airport runway, and automobile racing may be the best federal aeronautical dollars ever spent. “It’s a great venue for this, since the airport is still closed,” said Tom Hunsinger with the Rocky Mountain region of the SCCA. There’s more to it than stomping the gas. They’d really like you to take the test and tuning class, which was Friday. But if you beg and wheedle and whine and write them a check, they might let you compete Saturday and/or Sunday. They already have 175 cars registered, and Hunsinger says more will likely show up when people start hearing the Great American Symphony that is the welltuned internal combustion engine and screaming tires. The first run starts at 9 a.m. and they’ll keep running until around 3 p.m., Hunsinger said. The classes are specific, but the rules are simple. You run the pylon course as fast as you can. The fastest run wins. “We try to get people three runs, and your best run is

the one that counts,” said Hunsinger. Knock down a pylon and take a two second penalty. “We try to discourage people from hitting cones,” Hunsinger said. And it doesn’t matter how loudly you blast “Highway Star” by Deep Purple. Local lightning Steve Dickman grew up here and owns Kombucha tea, which is good. He also owns a totally rebuilt 2003 GTi Volkswagen that generates 408 horsepower, which is better. His favorite speed is somewhere north of 120 mph. “I love autocross,” said Dickman. “You can drive as fast as you want and you don’t arrested for it.” He straps on the high performance racing tires and when he hits third gear it snaps his head back around like he’s bikini watching on Malibu beach. “It’s like making the jump to light speed in Star Trek,” he said. And this weekend, Dickman will be among a couple hundred kindred spirits. Dickman said it’s important to be consistent, not necessarily hard charging. You can be in your stock street car or your ready-torun racer. You’re out there by yourself, so your chances of wrecking the Lexus aren’t nearly as high as it is in wheel-to-wheel racing. Just to make sure they were squared away with airport’s wide open spaces of concrete and pavement, they held a regional event a few weeks ago. It went swimmingly and they’re ready for this weekend’s national SCCA event.

The Saturday market in downtown Minturn is the longest running market in the region. “Any exposure is helpful to the market, because we have such limited funding,� Milhoan said. Edwards Market organizer Rick Scalpello feels like the contest is not between local competitors, although he thinks Edwards would garner a lot of votes. Instead, the competition is between a market like Vail and a market in Boulder, for example, he said, or one in Washington, D.C. “I hope they do get the national attention. I think it would bring recognition to Vail to be a known name across the country,� Scalpello said. Edwards, also on Saturdays, sees about 1,000 people, “but everyone who comes, buys,� Scalpello said. “We don’t need a large number of people,� Scalpello said. “Even with our smaller crowd, it’s unusual for someone to leave the Edwards market without one bag.

Peaches from Palisade at area markets

Late summer in Colorado is a succulent peach. Those sticky, fuzzy, orbs — most of them from Palisade on the Western Slope — have hit local farmers’ markets, roadside stands and area supermarkets. The season this year will run through early September, according to Leif Johnson, executive director of the Palisade Chamber of Commerce. In Edwards, Minturn and Vail farmers’ markets, look for bigger mom-and-pop operations to buy your peaches from. An early freeze killed about 20 percent of the crop, but there’s still plenty of the golden fruit to be had, Johnson said. “We’re basking in peaches, here,� Johnson said. “Our growers are harvesting them now, so the later varieties should be great.� If you don’t get your fill from area markets, head for the Palisade Peach Festival, coming Aug. 13-Aug. 16. “We’re going to have a great crop,� Johnson said. Growers include High Country Orchards and the organic Kokopelli Farms. Some 24 peach orchards belong to the chamber, including the regionally known Z’s Orchards and Produce and Clark’s Farms. — By Beth Potter

Woods first five holes could be described as and eagle sandwich on birdies as he went birdie-birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie to get to -7 for the tournament and put to rest any whispers that he might miss his second consecutive cut for the first time in his career. “I just wanted to get off to a quick start and take advantage of the holes you’re supposed to take advantage of,” said Woods, who began the second round on the easier back nine at Warwick Hills. “I birdied a few more than I thought I would.” Woods eagled the par-4, 340-yard No. 12(his third hole), by holing out a pitch from about 40 yards. After a bogey and three more birdies , Woods is back in contention at -10. John Senden is in the lead at -14 after rounds of 64 and 66.

And you thought mountain lions were scary? West Vail residents like to talk about a mountain lion that’s been spotted in their neighborhood in the past. It could be worse ... LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police in Las Vegas say a tamed tiger that escaped from a magic act has been captured. Police say the residents in the city’s northwest section reported seeing the tiger wandering their streets Thursday night. Police Lt. Les Lane says the cat belongs to Fernando’s Brothers magic act. He says the cat got loose, but “they got it back into custody.” The cat was found in a resident’s backyard. Animal Control and Metro Police are investigating the incident.
