Altering the waste stream ‘Pay as you throw’ recycling program to be considered in Vail By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Vail’s elected officials today will consider whether or not to encourage residents to recycle by introducing a “payas-you-throw� program. Under such a program, residents may be asked to buy colored bags to separate their trash and recyclable materials. If town council members approve such a program, they could make it mandatory



The Standard & Poor’s 500 index, a benchmark for many mutual funds, broke above 1,000 on Monday for the first time since November as reports on manufacturing, housing and banking sent investors more signals that the economy is gathering strength. The Nasdaq composite index logged its first close above 2,000 since October. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 114.95, or 1.3 percent, to 9,286.56. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 15.15, or 1.5 percent, to 1,002.63. The Nasdaq composite index rose 30.11, or 1.5 percent, to 2,008.61.

McCain to vote no on Sotomayor; Nelson yes

Republican Sen. John McCain announced Monday he’d join the vast majority of the GOP to vote against Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who’s on track to be confirmed this week as the first Hispanic justice. McCain’s decision, the day before the Senate debates President Barack Obama’s first high court nominee, underscored the degree to which Republicans—even those who, like the Arizonan, represent large Hispanic pop[See THE UPDATE, pages 6-7]



for trash haulers to offer recycling to customers at no charge and to offer trash hauling at a variable rate. Town council members are expected to discuss the “pay-as-you-throw� program at 2 p.m. at the town council chambers, at 75 South Frontage Road in Vail. The meeting is open to the public.

Pay as you throw could grow In Avon, town officials would be interested to see how a possible “pay-asyou-throw� trash and recycling program works in Vail, said Becky Lawlor, a town spokeswoman. The town has private recycling options available from trash haulers and a public recycling drop-off program on an open lot between City Market and Wal-Mart. Virtually every town in the county has some sort of recycling service and/or a recycling drop-off program. Eagle and Minturn each have specific trash and recycling contracts with area trash haulers. In other towns, trash haulers offer recycling bins to residents for a flat fee. — Beth Potter

Valley celebrates National Night Out tonight By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Brian Kozak is a practical man. The Avon Police Chief puts it like this: Someday you’re going to get pulled over for a traffic violation. When the cop walks up to your window, would you rather it be an acquaintance with whom you’ve had a delightful conversation, who might let you skate with a warning? Or someone who you don’t know from a load of coal? And that’s why the Avon police are hosting National Night Out in three local locations. “The whole idea is to get people together, to bring them out of their houses,� Kozak said. This is the Avon P.D.’s third year to host these, and they’ve learned a couple things. First, since it’s happening around dinner time, you’ll be hungry and they’ll feed you and your family. Second, it’s a party so they’re providing music, a band in one location and DJs in the other two. Third, they have thousands of dollars worth of prizes, gift certificates and savings bonds from local banks. Fourth, they’ll have carnival games and those giant bouncy castles wear out kids, which will keep the youngsters engaged while you get to know the officers who may or may not write you traffic tickets, or with whom you might have other encounters. “We want to bring people out of their houses, to get them together with their neighbors and with the officers,� Kozak said. They’ll also have information about the Avon Police Department’s Citizens Academy. The Academy runs in September, with seminars on five nights. You don’t have to do them all, but you might want to. Seminars will deal with things like the use of force, deadly force and otherwise.

The Avon Police Department is hosting three community parties tonight for National Night Out, a community partnership program. There will be free food, carnival games and bouncy castles, and music. They start at 6:30 p.m. Pictured here is McGruff the crime dog with a youngster at last year’s celebration. Photo courtesy Avon Police Department.

“Participants will get to use shooting simulators as they make their way through various ‘shoot/don’t shoot’ scenarios,� Kozak said. Police departments host National Night Out across the U.S. Last year, 34 million people from all 50 states got involved. It’s designed to increase crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for anti-crime programs, and strengthen neighborhood partnerships.

tour of district in effort to collect health care comments By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

Congress is like health insurance, both institutions are generally despised by Americans, but we tend to think ours is OK. Jared Polis is our U.S. Congressman. He’ll be spending part of his August recess in Edwards for a town hall meeting in which he hopes you’re more civil than the crowd that booed their congressmen right off the stage. If you’re interested, check out the Youtube video of Democrat Congressman Russ Carnahan being booed off the stage as he tries to explain and defend Obamacare. While you’re there, check out the one where Republican Congressman Gresham Barrett annihilated after admitting to a TEA Party crowd that he voted for the bank bailout. Ouch. Polis will be at the Singletree Community Center, 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 19., if you want to attend and create a youtube video of your own. He will also be touring the Bright Futures facilities in Edwards at 3 p.m., then sitting in on a 5 p.m. healthcare reform roundtable, featuring local business leaders. Colorado Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet have not nailed down their schedules for August, their staffers said. Congress on Your Corner Polis and other Obamacare backers have their work cut out for them as they crisscross their states and congressional districts to talk about the $1.4 trillion package, the bank bailout, the auto industry … has it really only been six months? He’s traveling the 2nd Congressional District to meet constituents and collect public opinion It’s all part of his Congress on Your Corner events. Polis schedules public appearances at places like shopping malls, fairs and farmers markets all over the 2nd congressional district, which starts in Eagle County and heads down the I-70 corridor to parts of Jefferson County, then takes a left – both physically and politically – to Boulder. “It can be tough to attract a crowd to a town hall meeting to discuss issues,” said Lara Cottingham, Po-

lis’s press secretary. “Those crowds tend to be more politically engaged. At the Congress on Your Events it’s a completely different audience.” In the meantime, public opinion continues to fall. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll this week showed that 46 percent disapproved of Obama’s handling of health care reform, while 41 percent approved. A Rasmussen poll last week showed worse numbers, with 53 percent opposing the Obama-backed plan. That is up from 45 percent opposed in June. A Fox News poll found that 45 percent think their quality of health care would be worse under the Democratic plan; 58 percent think health care reform would cost them more money. Spokesperson: ‘You have to give him some props’ Polis has his own issues with the healthcare reform package, beginning with who’ll pay for it. He and other freshman Democrats in the House fired off a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, asking them to think of something better than their proposed tax on small businesses. “Jared was one of 10 Democrats speaking out for small businesses. You have to give him some props,” Cottingham said. In fact, Polis and two other Democrats joined Republicans on the to vote against it in the House Education and Labor Committee. He was on the short end of a 26-22 vote that sent the measure to the floor. He also says he’s disappointed that the compromise reached with the more conservative Blue Dog Democrats removed a public option from the current package. “Health care reform is the single most important step we can take to help families and rebuild our economy, and I feel this cannot be accomplished without a strong public option,” Polis said in a written statement. “I strongly support this essential reform that will bring relief to struggling families by expanding choice and containing costs in our health care system.” Polis said he likes almost everything about the bill, [See POLIS TO VISIT, page 8]

Parking fills garages again While July sets new record number of cars through Eisenhower By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer You know it’s probably going to be a great sales day when the parking lot is full. So, even though Vail’s official sales tax revenues haven’t been compiled yet to back up the claims, anecdotally, the town is filled with events and shoppers this summer. Last weekend, the Kick-it 3v3 soccer tournament, the Sunday Vail Farmer’s Market and Art Show, and a tennis tournament at Ford Park filled up town parking structures, about 2,500 spaces in all. Electronic message signs directed drivers to park on the South Frontage Road until 11 p.m, said Mike Rose, Vail’s parking and transit manager. The time was set for the winter drivers, since that’s when road crews get out to plow, he said. “We’re nice and busy,” Rose said. The number of drivers parking on the frontage road is currently about 100 cars or so when they do overflow the structures. A 300,000- to 400,000-car summer Vail is on track to see 300,000 to 400,000 cars this summer, based on counting done at the parking structures so far, Rose said. A previous “old-fashioned” counting study found a similar number of cars during the summer season, he said. “It’s close to where we thought we were at,” Rose said. “It’s too soon to see what kind of trends we’ll

have, (but) we’re going to be in that ballpark.” Clark Family Orchards in Palisade is seeing a strong clientele on Sunday mornings — those folks who need a place to park so they can peruse the market, said Dennis Clark, who owns the business with his wife. The Clarks are known for their peaches, Olathe sweet corn (bought from Olathe farmers, but sold from their booth), home-grown tomatoes, jams and jellies and other jarred goods, Clark said. But he’s so busy this year dealing with his orchards that he hasn’t had time to come to the Vail market. Clark employees also sell at the Edwards Market on Saturdays. “Everything runs smoothly, so it’s great for all the vendors,” Clark said. July sets new Eisenhower record Meanwhile, Denver’s 9news is reporting a record number of 1,225,605 vehicles traveled through the Eisenhower/Johnson tunnels in July of this year. The Colorado Department of Transportation says it was the first time monthly traffic at the tunnel exceeded 1.2 million vehicles, making it the busiest month in the 36-year history of the tunnels. CDOT also released other top 10 records set over the weekend, which reveal August to be on pace to be another record-setting month. From that release: • Highest 24-hour traffic count of 50,918 set Sunday • Second-highest eastbound/westbound hourly count of 4,629 vehicles set at 1 p.m. Sunday • 9th-highest eastbound/westbound hourly count of 4,499 vehicles set at 3 p.m. Sunday

Eagle Care Medical Clinic needs more money Eagle Care Medical Clinic at the Edwards Pavilion in Edwards needs money. County commissioner Sara Fisher and other county officials met with Vail Valley Medical Center board members Monday to discuss how to work together to get a key federal designation that may bring more funds to the clinic.


Specifically, if the clinic gets the new designation, reimbursement rates for doctors could go up, Fisher said. Patients who are uninsured or on Medicaid have pushed the clinic over its capacity, Fisher said. Just two doctors in the county currently work with uninsured and underinsured patients, Fisher said. Dr. Kent Petrie, three nurses and one medical assistant work at the clinic, according to information on its Web site.

“Without this designation, the hospital reimbursement rate is so low, that there is no incentive for doctors to accept patients,� Fisher said. The clinic is an extension of the Vail Valley Medical Center in Vail. Its mission “is to provide high quality affordable healthcare to uninsured or underinsured that live in Eagle County,� according to the Web site. It does not provide emergency services.


named after Rebecca Yarberry, a local triathalete who died in a car crash here a couple of years ago, is next on the agenda for the Edmonsons. “We love it so far. It’s so fun,� Mom Edmonson said. “It’s a challenge.� Daughter Edmonson took second in the under-19s in Danskin. But she ran an extra two miles or so in her next race, meaning she added about 20 minutes to her non-winning time. In fact, daughter Sydney started a second lap and caught up to her mom, who told her that she needed to hightail it back to the finish line.

‘Fun to do together’ “We run, and she cycles a lot,� Edmonson said. “�It’s a really fun thing to do together.� Both mom and daughter are working on their swimming skills, going to Turquoise Lake in Leadville in new

County makes massive layoff


Alabama’s debt-ridden Jefferson County laid off about two-thirds of its 3,600 employees on Monday because of plunging revenues, a move that will harshly cut back services, Reuters reports. The cuts come after the county racked up around $4 billion in debt by using exotic financial instruments to fund a revamp of its sewer system. The work-force layoffs will affect the roads and transportation, revenue and security departments, and reductions will also hit the courthouse and information technology department as well as laborers paid on an hourly basis. County workers placed on administrative leave under the cuts will be entitled to unemployment and some health-care benefits and will be called back after 45 days, according to a senior county official.

Tax revenues go south

The recession is starving the government of tax revenue, just as the president and Congress are piling a major expansion of health care and other programs on the nation’s plate and struggling to find money to pay the tab. The numbers could hardly be more stark: Tax receipts are on pace to drop 18 percent this year, the biggest single-year decline since the Great Depression, while the federal deficit balloons to a record $1.8 trillion. Other figures underscore the recession’s impact: Individual income tax receipts are down 22 percent from

Schumer ready to shoehorn health care bill

Frustrated with the pace of bipartisan talks, Democratic leaders on Monday promised to push a sweeping health care bill through the Senate whether they get Republican support or not. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the third-ranking Senate Democrat, raised the prospect of invoking a procedural maneuver that would allow them to pass the health bill with 51 instead of 60 votes. That route is viewed as a last resort since it limits what legislative measures would be allowed and any broad policy initiatives would probably have to be limited. Four House and Senate committees have already passed sweeping health care bills, but none has attracted a single Republican vote. That makes it unlikely or impossible that they could attract the 60 votes necessary to advance in the 100-seat Senate.

Health care, Russian style

Reuters is reporting that Russian soccer fans have been instructed to drink whisky on their trip to Wales for next month’s World Cup qualifier to ward off the H1N1 swine flu virus by the head of the country’s supporter association (VOB). “We urge our fans to drink a lot of Welsh whisky as a form of disinfection,” VOB head Alexander Shprygin told Reuters.

a year ago. Corporate income taxes are down 57 percent. The last time the government’s revenues were this bleak, the year was 1932 in the midst of the Depression. Social Security is in danger of running out of money earlier than the government projected just a few months ago. Highway, mass transit and airport projects are at risk because fuel and industry taxes are declining. The national debt already exceeds $11 trillion. The future of current programs — not to mention the new ones Obama is proposing — will depend largely on how fast the economy recovers from the recession, said William Gale, co-director of the Tax Policy Center.

According to the report, friends of the couple say “Billy is obsessed with her” and is trying to rekindle the relationship. Sources have reported the two split because Joel did not want to have kids and a family while Katie Lee -- a TV food critic and chef -- did. Katie Lee’s many nights out with designer Yigal Azrouel added to the tension. “Billy never wanted to go out with her. She wanted to have fun and promote herself, so she started hanging out with Yigal,” a source told the Post, which went on to report that a friend of Katie Lee’s said, “They’re not getting back together. She is trying to move on.”

As part of President Hugo Chavez’s drive to broaden his socialist revolution to the media, more than a dozen radio stations ordered shut by the Venezuelan government went off the air on Saturday, Reuters reports. Opponents said the initiative infringed onDON freedom SJOSTROM of speech and that owners were not given the right to a proper defense. “They’re closing the space for dissidents in Venezuela,” William Echeverria, head of the National Council of Journalists, told RCTV, a private cable TV station, which did not have its broadcasting license renewed in ‘07.

Riccardo Ricco banned for doping at 2008 Tour After the inordinate amount of testing at the 2009 Tour de France, it’s about time the International Cycling Union released its bans for the 2008 Tour. The ICU said Friday it had given Italian rider Riccardo Ricco a two-year worldwide ban for doping at the 2008 Tour de France. But the governing body left the door open for the 25-yearold mountain stage specialist to reduce the suspension— and become eligible for the 2010 Giro d’Italia—by sharing information on doping with its lawyer Ricco tested positive for CERA, an advanced version of the banned blood-boosting hormone EPO, after winning two stages of the 2008 Tour. The French anti-doping authority banned him from

Twittering on defense, half the distance to Facebook

The New York Times is reporting that the NFL is launching an early crusade against the messaging service. As training camps opened last week, players were told that the same standard that applies to the flow of information to reporters

racing in France for two years, and then the Italian Olympic committee imposed the same suspension in his home country. Ricco appealed the Italian decision at CAS and got a reduced suspension of 20 months for providing information on doping in the peloton. The revised ban ran through March 17, 2010, clearing Ricco to start the Giro next May. He was runner-up in the 2008 race. However, the UCI said it imposed its two-year sanction because Italy’s Olympic committee did not have authority in the case. Ricco can return to CAS, sport’s highest court of appeal, to challenge the UCI’s decision.

also applies to Twitter. In Green Bay, players were told they would be fined if they texted or Twittered from team meetings or coaching sessions. Coaches worry that the casual nature of Twitter could inspire the budding bloggers in their locker rooms to inadvertently disclose more than they should about injuries, game plans and what is said

behind closed doors. The NFL has not yet developed a policy for Twitter. However, cellphones, computers and P.D.A.’s cannot be used by players or coaches on the sideline, in coaches’ booths or locker rooms during games. NFL officials are working on a policy that would apply to the use of social media sites, like Twitter, on the day of the game.

This surcharge, combined with state taxes, could result in many successful small businesses being taxed at more than 50 percent. “The surcharge is a bit of a flawed concept,� he told the Wall Street Journal. “Especially in a recession, we

Vail Honeywagon and Waste Management, the two trash haulers in town. Many residents just don’t know it exists, according to statistics collected in a recent $10,000-or-so study half paid for by the Northwest Colorado Council of Governments, a government group, and half by the town. “We know statistically that pay-as-you-throw works, but this is different with a seasonal community,� said Kristen Bertuglia, the town’s s environmental sustainability coordinator. Vail Honewagon supports recycling, but Matt Donovan, the company’s owner, says “pay as you throw� doesn’t work. “We applaud the town of Vail for making waste reduction an area of focus, but the pay-as-you-throw program doesn’t work for several reasons,� Donovan said. “Increased recycling can be achieved without being legislated. There are some simple ways to do that.� Donovan suggests a public relations campaign to encourage residents to recycle more, for example. Waste Management, the other main trash hauler in town, deals with numerous other “pay-as-you-throw� programs around the country, said Melissa Kolwaite, a spokeswoman for Waste Management of Colorado. In the broadest sense, recycling materials like paper, cardboard and glass doesn’t pay for itself, Kolwaite said. But in a Vail-specific program, a customer wouldn’t necessarily pay more if the program goes into effect, she said. “People end up paying less for their overall service,

Existing recycling options in the Valley: Waste Management: Residential trash pick-up is $46 per month, and recycling is included. Recycling is every other week. One or two 18-gallon containers are available.

because they end up throwing out less trash,� Kolwaite said. “It does alter the waste stream.� Vail’s elected officials have made it a goal to divert 10 percent of the waste to somewhere else in the next five years that it currently sends to the landfill. A second goal calls for the town to divert 25 percent of its waste from the landfill in the next 10 years. Other recycling program variables may be discussed, Bertuglia said. In Colorado, towns like Aspen, Telluride, Loveland, Colorado Springs and Boulder have “pay-as-you-throw� programs, she said.

So he’s more of a car thief than a cat burglar. It just didn’t sound as good ... ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) — Police say they have arrested a suspected car thief whom they caught napping at the wheel of a stolen car. South Australia Police say the 30-yearold man drove the Audi convertible into an automatic car wash early Monday and apparently fell asleep. A service station attendant called the police at 3 a.m. when he noticed the car hadn’t moved for an hour. The police said in a statement that the car has two different license plates and that police discovered it had been reported stolen in July. They woke the man and arrested him on charges of illegal use and theft of the car. He has been released on bail and will face court in September. Moving along ...
