Polis hosts health care forum tomorrow



Major U.S. stocks indexes tumbled by the biggest amount in six weeks Monday as investors feared they have been too quick in betting on an economic rebound during the market’s five-month rally. Jitters about China’s economy and lackluster profits at home-improvement retailer Lowe’s Cos. added to concerns from last week that a rebound in the economy is far off. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 186.06, or 2 percent, to 9,135.34. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 24.36, or 2.4 percent, to 979.73. The Nasdaq composite index fell 54.68, or 2.8 percent, to 1,930.84.

Mountaineer Staff Report The adventures of a newspaper publisher continue … Mountaineer publisher Jim Pavelich was merrily passing out papers Sunday, stationed next to a lovely woman who was selling apple strudel, his 5 and 8-year-old daughters helping, when he was approached by a gentleman, a woman and a Vail Code Enforcement Officer. The woman asked him to leave, saying “Panhandling is not allowed,” to which Pavelich responded, “Are you calling me a panhandler?”

She reiterated that he wasn’t supposed to be there, Pavelich told her to stop bothering him, and she said they’ll speak to the town about it on Monday.

A program to boost pay in the Sheriff’s office will cost Eagle County $139,000 to cover back pay right now, and another $500,000 a year in pay increases starting next year. The pay-for-training program increases the top pay scale to $70,574 for master deputies. The county’s benefit package adds another 50 percent to those salary levels. The program was established in 2006 to help keep deputies once they’re trained. The extra funding stopped when the commissioners froze county salaries. The $139,000 the commissioners agreed to Monday covers back pay for deputies who completed the training in 2007-08, and brings them current through 2009. Right now, there are 20 Sheriff’s office employees involved in the program. Turnover costs $83,550 per position, Jeff Layman, Eagle County Undersheriff told the commissioners Monday. Based on that number, the Sheriff’s office says it would cost the county would be $2.3 million without the retention program, based on current turnover rates and the $83,550 the Sheriff’s office says it costs to replace those people. The program would cost $509,300, and assuming a turnover rate of two positions per year, the cost to the county with the program in place is $182,594, Layman said. It’ll take about five years to get to the master deputy level, Layman said. Layman said they’ll pay for the program, in part, with the $200,000 he says the Sheriff’s office saved in 2008, expanding the inmate work program throughout the county to save money on county staff time. But much of it will be paid for by charging Gypsum more for police protection, $75,000 more in 2009 than the $400,000 Gypsum paid in 2008. After that, it’ll cost Gypsum $100,000 more per year than in 2008. The Sheriff’s office is also keeping a closer eye on overtime, Layman said. The Sheriff’s office is on track to spend $230,000 this year on over time, down from $269,000. That reverses a trend between 2004 and 2007 when overtime went up 50 percent. “What’s the long term benefit, beyond having the best trained officers around?” asked County Commissioner Sara Fisher. “What you get is a better trained officer,” answered Hoy. “If everyone is trained at the high level, it’s a better service to the community.


Calculating turnover This is how the Sheriff’s office calculates the $83,550 it says it costs to replace one person. Soft costs • Recruiting officers salaries, $17,100 • Field Training Officers Salaries, $7,700 • In-house training, $4,100 • Separation costs, $1,500 • Hiring process fees, $5,300 • Trainee’s salary, $12,100 Soft cost subtotal: $47,800 in time for staff already in place Hard costs • Field Training Officer Overtime, $9,100 • Tuition expenses at CMC, $1,600 • Travel expenses at 555 cents per mile, $2,200 • Hourly wage for employee, $9,950 • Specialized training fees, $5,100 • Uniforms and equipment, $7,300 • Testing fees, $500 Hard cost subtotal: $37,750 Total cost of turnover for one position: $83,550 —Source: Eagle County Sheriff’s office When it’s time to leave Deputies leave the Sheriff’s office for most of the same reasons people leave about any job: Pay and benefits, the high cost of living, family issues, said Eagle County Sheriff Joe Hoy. Some deputies leave because they want to move into command positions, not something likely to happen in Eagle County because the number of command positions is limited and none of the people in them are close to retirement, Hoy said “For people going through the skills based program there is no turnover,” Layman said. Between 2003 and 2005, the Sheriff’s office saw an 18 percent turnover rate, Layman said. It dropped to 9.4 percent in 2006 and climbed back to 14 percent last year. Right now, the Sheriff’s office spends $1,000 per year in training for a junior deputy $2,200 per year for a senior deputy, and $1,600 per year for a master deputy. Once they reach master status, it costs $1,200 to maintain their proficiency. “There will always be a need to train law enforcement officers,” said Layman. “A lot of the skills we require are perishable, such as firearms, pursuit and high speed performance driving.”

Wood burning plant does well in California $30M in federal funding could pay for Vail operation



By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer If residents worry that a plan to build a wood-burning “gasification” power plant in Vail will pollute the air, they should look to similar plants in California and Europe for answers, promoters say. For example, a biomass plant in Burney, Calif., has operated for 20 years as “an environmentally friendly neighbor,” said Ron Gawer, plant manager. The plant meets all Environmental Protection Agency standards, Gawer said. “You should not be concerned that a biomass plant will be a smoke-belching stinky plant like you might picture,” Gawer said. “We’ve come a long way with emission controls.” Hayden Cary & King Co. paper company in Darien, Conn., has applied for $30 million in federal funding to build a wood-burning plant in Vail. Town officials have sent a letter of support for the plan, and may also offer the company three acres of land near the town’s public works department, which is across Interstate 70 from town parks and the golf course. The plant would burn chipped wood for heat to potentially melt snow on town streets, to heat some water for residents’ homes in town and to generate energy to heat and cool some buildings, according to Andrew King, manager of the potential project. A tourism generator? “What we’re burning is no different than natural gas,” King said. “Wood is super-heated and releases the methane and hydrogen gas.” Vail is a good place to put the plant because it is close to a lot of bark beetle-killed trees which would be the

fuel for the plant, King said. It could bring as many as 100 jobs while being built, he said, and 50 jobs on an ongoing basis, including tree cutting operation jobs. And Beaver Creek is the sister city of Lech, Austria, where another biomass plant is located. In fact, King envisions a new plant as a tourism generator as well. “Vail is the perfect venue to educate people. This is managed forestry, sustainable forestry,” King said. “We can showcase the harvesting of the biomass, and the fire mitigation and bring in the technology that is cleaner than California air standards.” The Department of Energy grant decision may be made in January, King said. If built, the plant may some day take the place of hot water boilers currently heating the Arrabelle at Vail Square hotel in Lionshead, the new Mountain Plaza complex near the Vista Bahn chairlift, the Vail hospital, the library and all other public buildings, King said.

Traer Creek appeals property rights lawsuit Mountaineer Staff Report The developer of Home Depot and Wal-Mart in Avon is appealing a judge’s July ruling about its vested property rights, the town said in a statement. Traer Creek-RP LLC filed a lawsuit against the Town of Avon in early 2008 about the issue. Traer Creek alleged that the town’s vested property rights regulations violated the terms of the 1998 Village at Avon annexation and development agreement. Vested property rights, in general, are the legal rights developers have to build particular buildings and infra-

structure on specific pieces of land Town officials amended Avon’s vested property rights regulations in February. Traer Creek-RP officials have said that any amendments to the already approved Village at Avon plans should be exempt from any new or amended regulations concerning vested property rights. But in early 2008, Traer Creek-RP withdrew an application to amend its plans, according to the town’s statement. As part of the Village at Avon, the developer controls virtually all of the land between the Traer Creek Plaza shopping and Chapel Square to the

west. The company hasn’t built anything since 2004, however. District court judge Frederick Gannett said he dismissed the lawsuit because the court should not impose its views on the residents of Avon before elected officials have the opportunity to do their jobs, according to the town statement on the matter. “It continues to be unfortunate that the Town of Avon must spend taxpayer monies to defend this litigation,” said Mayor Ron Wolfe in the town statement. A Traer Creek representative was not available for comment after business hours on Monday.

XXXX–––––––––––-------------------------------------[FrompageXX] shifting again. President Obama’s Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told a national television audience that government-run insurance isn’t essential. “What’s important is choice and competition,” Sebelius said. Democratic strategist James Carville kicked a little sand himself, saying they should let Republicans “kill” health care. Polis, a Boulder Democrat serving his first term in Congress, will talk about that, along with stuff like cap and trade and a host of other expensive ideas on Wednesday when he gets here. A few things are true about the Health care-GoRound 1. No one’s sure what will be in the final package. 2. Therefore, no one’s sure what it will cost.

Also on Polis’ agenda is a 1 p.m. meeting with Bright Future Foundation for Eagle County, a domestic violence shelter and a Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV) member organization. They’ll meet in the Holy Cross Commissioner’s Conference Room of the Eagle County Building, 500 Broadway Street in Eagle. After that it’s a 3 p.m. Health Care Reform Roundtable, which is invitation only. There he’s expected to discuss health care reform with Eagle County representatives from the small business community and ski industry. Polis’ visit comes at the heels of a recent trip here by Senator Michael Bennet, who hosted a health care town hall on Friday. Missing from the August Town-Hall-OThon is Sen. Mark Udall. The Boulder Democrat isn’t up for election for another five years.

Fieldhouse on budget, on time WECMRD arena to feature electricity generating bikes By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer “Wait” is an action verb in WECMRD’s Edwards Fieldhouse of Dreams. The waiting area will have human dynamo bikes that will generate electricity to run televisions, along with a few Wii fitness games. No sitting in the fieldhouse waiting area. The $8 million fieldhouse is 40,000 square feet and it’s ahead of schedule and right on budget, said Steve Russell, director of the Western Eagle County Metropolitan Recreation District. “It’s going well and lot of credit to R.A. Nelson,” Russell said. R.A. Nelson won the competitive bidding and is building the recreational facility. Russell said they’re still anticipating early December opening and will offer free activities for a few weeks. They plan to start leagues in Jan. The Youth Foundation will be in the facility to run their programs and help implement WECMRD’s

youth programs. That’ll help because the fieldhouse is within walking distance of five schools and 2,000 students. Two more schools are within a mile and a half. Also, the Edwards Metro District came up with a grant for mini climbing wall for little kids, Russell said. “Around 6:30 p.m., it transitions into adult use,” said Russell. An Eco Build grant for $53,000 to create a photo voltaic array on the south-facing roof. WECMRD applied for another grant from the governor’s office that would double that photo voltaic capacity. ECO Build grants are funded by fines paid into county coffers by homebuilders who don’t meet the county’s green building standards. The fieldhouse has been part of the Freedom Park master plan for more than a decade, since it was finalized by former county commissioners Michael Gallagher, Tom Stone and Johnnette Phillips. WECMRD is going it alone on this project. WECMRD district voters gave a big two thumbs up for the rec district to float bonds to help

pay for the project. The financing package combines $4 million in bond debt with $3 million WECMRD district managed to save up, and another $500,000 in grants WECMRD found. The county commissioners refused to come up with any money for the project. The Eagle County School District also took a pass on participating in the project. If you want to get involved, donors can even buy naming rights. It would cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $1 million and your name would hang on it for at least 20 years, said Russell. The as-yet unnamed fieldhouse will be slightly smaller than the Gypsum Recreation Center and will feature indoor soccer, basketball and volleyball courts, a gymnastics facility, locker rooms and, possibly, weight rooms. It also will be home to an Eagle County Sheriff’s Office substation and a community room. Any number of expansions and upgrades are possible in the future, Russell said.

$3.9M to move Eagle ballfields Lafarge wants to mine gravel, agrees to build new fields By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer A local gravel mining company is willing to pay $3.9 million to move the Eagle ballfields so they can get at the gravel underneath. Lafarge will build the new Eagle Sports Complex closer to the Eagle River, with possible amphitheater seating carved into the hillside. Eagle County owns the land and in exchange for having the ballfields moved, it will take a pass on the mining royalties it would have received from Lafarge. Construction will likely start in the fall of 2010, and the fields should be ready for play in the spring of 2011, said Eagle County Attorney Bryan Treu. When it’s done, the new Eagle Sports Complex could

contain as many as eight baseball fields and eight youth soccer fields. “We believe that Eagle is poised to be a premier regional sports and recreation site,” said Steve Russell, director of the Western Eagle County Metropolitan Recreation District, which manages the Eagle Sports Complex. Local athletic fields are used extensively by locals through the week, Monday through Thursday, Russell said. “That leaves the weekends for these kinds of regional events,” Russell said. The long-term goal is a regional park at the fairgrounds that would connect the ballfields with the fairgrounds, and the whole thing to downtown Eagle. There’s an existing bridge that could be part of the plan, a possible promenade and an automobile access. “Expanding year-round use of the fairgrounds is the longterm goal,” said County Commissioner Jon Stavney.

Symposium continues ‘Rethink’ series Photographer Drex Brooks captures art, American West theme By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer The Sand Creek Massacre in southeast Colorado in 1864 killed hundreds of American Indians. Pictures of the now Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site in more modern times are among the many of the recent photographs of Drex Brooks, a social photographer in Utah. Brooks will show some of those photographs and discuss his work at the Sonnenalp Resort of Vail today. “Rethinking the Native American West,” will be a discussion of American Indian art and how that art has captured the American Indian culture. Brooks and John Haworth, director of the National Museum of the American Indian’s George Gustav Heye Center in New York will talk at 5:30 p.m. and costs $25. A reception after the talk will be held at the Claggett/Rey Gallery, 100 E. Meadow Drive. The talk, along with an outdoor mushroom foray and other recent events, is part of the Vail Symposium’s theme this month, said Carrie Marsh, symposium director. “Colorado is the focus this month, and the influence of the American West,” Marsh said.

‘Sweet Medicine’ project Brooks’s work is billed as that which captures the beauty and sadness that characterizes the current position of the American Indian in modern American society. His most recent photography project “Sweet Medicine” shows a collection of old sites throughout the West where massacres happened. He decided to take pictures of other massacre sites after he visited Sand Creek. “Rethink” is the theme of the symposium’s summer events, which include the popular Hot Topics talks, an adventure series and the upcoming film series at Beaver Creek. A short summer film series kicks off on Aug. 26 with “La Belle et La Bette,” a French film from 1946. Following three August films, the Symposium will host the world premiere of “The Edge of Never” on Sept. 16, a big mountain skiing flick that highlights the personal story of Trevor Peterson, who almost lost his life in Chamonix, France, and his son Kye, who returns 10 years later to conquer the mountain. Director William Kerig and Kye Peterson will talk about the movie afterward. Tickets to the event are $15, including the reception. The event will be held at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek.

swiping 130 million accounts on top of 40 million he stole previously. Albert Gonzalez, 28, who lives in Florida, broke his record for identity theft by hacking into retail networks, according to prosecutors, although they say his illicit computer exploits ended when he went to jail on charges stemming from an earlier case. Gonzalez is a one-time informant for the U.S. Secret Service, which he helped hunt hackers, authorities say. The agency later found out that he also had been working with criminals and feeding them information on investigations, even warning off at least one individual, according to authorities. According to the indictment, Gonazalez and his two Russian coconspirators would hack into corporate computer networks and secretly place “malware,” or malicious software, that would allow them backdoor access to the networks later to steal data.

Weapon wielding protestors attend Obama speech

Riverwalk, 1st & Main Building • Edwards, CO 926.7001

About a dozen people carrying guns, including one with a military-style rifle, milled among protesters outside the convention center where President Barack Obama was giving a speech Monday in Phoenix— the latest incident in which protesters have openly displayed firearms near the president. Gun-rights advocates say they’re exercising their constitutional right to bear arms and protest, while those who argue for more gun control say it could be a disaster waiting to happen. Phoenix police said the gun-toters at Monday’s event, including the man carrying an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle slung over his shoulder, didn’t need permits. No crimes were committed, and no one was arrested. The man with the rifle declined to be identified but told The Arizona Republic that he was carrying the assault weapon because he could. “In Arizona, I still have some freedoms,” he said.

Fed extends consumer lending program through March

The Federal Reserve said Monday it would extend a program intended to help spur more lending at low rates. The program, Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility, TALF, was originally set to expire at the end of the year. Under the program, the Fed allows for low-rate financing for investors to buy securities backed by credit card debt, auto loans, student loans and loans to small businesses. The market for such loans essentially froze up last fall with the eruption of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.


The program has the potential to generate up to $1 trillion in lending, according to the government. But participation has been scant: As of Aug. 12, the value of loans outstanding stood at just $29.6 billion.

Captain accused of accepting bribes in Iraq

A U.S. Army captain has been charged with accepting tens of thousands of dollars in bribes while he was stationed in Iraq to steer more than $500,000 in contracts. The charges were filed Monday against 38-year-old Bryant Williams, of Clarksville, Tenn. An indictment in federal court in Manhattan says Williams accepted the bribes while he was in Baghdad from 2005 to 2006. Williams was released on $50,000 bail after he pleaded not guilty to mail fraud and bribery. Defense attorney David Greenfield says Williams served two tours in Iraq during a 17-year Army career and that his record was unblemished. Authorities released neither the names of the alleged bribers nor the contractors. Authorities say the contracts were for a range of projects, from copiers to construction.

BBB issues warning of bogus online degree programs

The Better Business Bureau warned consumers against paying for online programs offering shortcuts to gaining a high school diplomas or college degree online. “As millions struggle to find a job, earning a diploma or an advanced degree is one way to stand out from the crowd,” the BBB said in a statement. “But some students found out the hard way that the diploma they thought they earned online wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on.” The BBB serving Houston has received 117 complaints from students in more than 40 states who paid for high school diplomas and advanced degrees from Belford High School and Belford University Students were duped into believing Belford High School was accredited school and that more than 99 percent of colleges would accept its diploma and ponied up much as $674 to earn a high school diploma by taking an online test or by qualifying through “life experience.” The BBB says the diplomas are worthless.

California lawmakers rewarded their employees with pay hikes during the first half of the year, an Associated Press review of legislative pay records showed. At least 87 California Assembly staff members received raises totaling more than $430,000 on an annualized basis, even as the state faced a growing budget deficit that led to furloughs and pay cuts for many other government workers and steep reductions in core services. The review of records obtained under the state Legislative Open Records Act found that salary bumps went to three employees in the office of Assembly Speaker Karen Bass, the Los Angeles Democrat who leads the 80-member chamber, and three to staff members of the Democratic caucus she oversees. In the 40-member Senate, nine staffers had a boost in pay, leading to an annualized increase of $152,000.

that she was performing on the day they mark the Virgin Mary’s ascension to Heaven, The Daily Mail reports. Catholic protestors demonstrated Warsaw’s Bemowo Airport, where the Material Girl performed in front of thousands at for her Sticky & Sweet world tour. Raised Catholic, Madonna has been a follower of the Kabbalah, a mystical offshoot of Judaism, since 1994. Her controversial performances have regularly upset the Catholic Church.

Researchers say Florida’s population has declined for the first time in 63 years and economists are blaming - what else? - the recession. The head of the University of Florida’s Bureau of Economic and Business Research says Monday that the state’s total population dropped by 58,000 in the past year. It’s the first decline since large numbers of military personnel left the state in 1946 after World War II. Bureau director Stan Smith says not as many people are moving to the Sunshine State since its tax revenues have plunged and it has seen jobs leave. Would-be Floridians also are finding themselves stuck in homes that they can’t sell, so they can’t afford the move.

Marty Singer, who represents the couple, told TMZ the third party in the video Kari Ann Peniche “had no idea” how the film was leaked onto the Internet site Singer told TMZ the tape does not show his clients having sex: “From what I’ve seen it’s a naked tape, not a sex tape. At most it’s three people maybe wanting to have sex.” At one point in the video, TMZ reports, Gayheart can be heard saying she needs to lie down because she’s so high.

Carmelo Anthony is suing his former business manager, alleging he misappropriated more than $2 million of the Denver Nuggets star’s assets. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Sacramento, Calif., on Monday, alleges that Anthony’s former business manager, Larry W. Harmon, and employees of Larry Harmon & Associates P.A., breached their fiduciary duties by transferring $1.75 million of Anthony’s money without his knowledge or consent to a company formed by Harmon, most of it in 2008. Another $265,500 was discovered to have been invested in third parties without Anthony’s knowledge or consent between 2005 and 2008, according to the lawsuit, which seeks recovery of the approximately $2 million, plus punitive damages. Anthony is entering the fourth year of a five-year, $80 million contract extension he signed in 2006. —The Associated Press Nuggets star player Carmelo Anthony, left, and LaLa Vezquez arrive at the 9th Annual BET Awards on Sunday, June 28, 2009, in Los Angeles.

Reports: Raider’s coach fractured assistant’s jaw Tom Cable allegedly punched out Randy Hanson By Dean Blazier Special to the Mountaineer Don’t mess with the Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable or, in the words of Anchorman Ron Burgandy, he might have Jack Johnson and Tom O’Leary waiting for you. Several media outlets reported Monday that Cable punched assistant coach Randy Hanson during training camp on Aug. 6 in Napa, Calif. Hanson reportedly did not want to pursue the matter, but staff at Queen of the Valley Hospital alerted authorities, according to Hanson suffered a fractured jaw, but the Napa Police are considering the matter closed “unless we are re-contacted by the victim, and the victim changes their mind that they want us to follow through and pursue an investigation. At this point we’re not doing anything else with it.” The Raiders did not respond to a call for comment. Hanson could not be reached.

Tyler Farrar of the United States has won the Hamburg Cyclassics race, breaking away in the home stretch to beat Matti Breschel of Denmark and Gerald Ciolek of Germany. Farrar, who rides for the GarminSlipstream team, covered the 134.5 miles in 5 hours, 30 minutes, 38 seconds on Sunday. Several breakaway attempts through-

out the race on the mostly flat course came up short. A multiple crash near the end did not affect any leading riders. Farrar started racing at the age of 13. Earlier this year he won Stage 3 at the Tirreno-Adriatico. He didn’t win any stages at this year’s Tour de France, but he took 2nd in Stage 2 and Stage 11 and 3rd in Stage 10. —The Associated Press

She is on a quest to win five gold medals at the February 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. “Lindsey is truly a hometown girl made good, and we could not be prouder to continue to be by her side on her epic quest to achieve five gold medals in Vancouver,” Rob Katz, Vail Resorts’ chief executive officer, said in a statement. Vonn will promote the Epic Pass, a season pass good at all five of the company’s resorts — Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Heavenly in Lake Tahoe, as well as Arapahoe Basin in Colorado that costs $599. She already is scheduled to appear at ski shows and consumer events this fall. “We’re really excited that Lindsey will be coming home,” said Aldo Radamus, executive director of Ski & Snowboard Club Vail, her hometown ski club. “All of the kids look up to her as a model. She is a great champion.” Vonn is scheduled to train on the new early-season snow at Golden Peak the third week of November, Radamus said. Vail Resorts recently got the go-ahead from the U.S. Forest Service to make more early-season snow on Golden Peak. “In between extensive travel … it’s an opportunity for our kids to see her,” Radamus said. “She is the face of American amateur sports around the world for her achievements and for the role model she is.” Vail Mountain is Vonn’s favorite resort. The 24-year-old and her husband currently live in Park City, Utah, but she learned to ski race in Vail. “I am always striving to achieve excellence in everything I do on the snow. I could not be more proud to partner with Vail Resorts because they share the same values as I do,” Vonn said in a statement. “Everyone there is as passionate about the mountains as I am.” The ski racer is considered to be one of the most successful, ever. She competes in the downhill, the Super G, the giant slalom, the slalom and the super combined ski race events and is the

only American woman to have won two World Cup Overall titles in 2008 and in 2009. Vonn has made the World Cup podium 47 times, the most of any U.S. female, including 22 victories. In the 2009 winter season, she achieved a record nine World Cup wins in a single season. She holds the World Cup Overall and downhill titles (2008 and 2009), the World Cup Super G title (2009) and four World Championships medals: Gold in downhill and Super G (2009) and silver in Downhill and Super G (2007). She also competed in both the 2002 and 2006 Olympic Winter Games. At the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy, she crashed in a training run prior to the downhill event, but went on to compete while injured, finishing in eighth place in the downhill and seventh in the Super G. Vonn’s courageous performance earned her the U.S. Olympic Committee’s “Olympic Spirit” award. Vonn was born in Burnsville, Minn., and she and her family commuted to Vail for training for several years before finally moving there permanently in the late 1990s to further her racing career.

Well, it wasn’t the most expensive instrument ever to have been left in a New York City taxi ... NEW YORK (AP) — A musician is reunited with his 18th-century violin after he mistakenly left in a New York City cab. City taxi officials say a GPS device in the cab led to the quick return of the instrument to Korean violinist Hanh-Bin on Monday. The violin is valued at around $600,000. The musician had taken a cab from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to his Chinatown apartment early Monday morning. He inadvertently left behind the violin and a credit card. In 2001, musician Lynn Harrell left behind a 328-yearold Stradivarius cello worth $4 million. In 1999, cellist Yo-Yo Ma forgot his $2.5 million, 266-year-old cello. Both instruments were eventually returned to their owners.

Cheyenne Summers, Jennifer Ponsa, Jay Matesanz and Justin Bell were all on duty at the Red Lion the other day when Sully appeared with his whippin stick and, after struggling with the staff for what seemed like hours, he managed to get them to pose for this photo. The Red Lion is a must eat while in Vail, and if you time it just right, you might get a chance to sing along with the ever-so-famous Phil Long up on the stage.

Aries (March 21-April 19): A commitment you cannot fulfill is bothering you. Weaseling out of things is what separates us from the animals. Except the weasel. Taurus (April 20-May 20): A difficult problem comes up today. The short answer is “yes.” The long answer is “no.”Gemini (May 21-June 21): In your world, you are the glue that keeps things moving. Cancer (June 22-July 22): Try a new tact when dating. You’ve been on so many blind dates that you should get a free dog. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): There are two rules for success you should remember. Rule one -- don’t tell everything you know. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Consider a career as a plagiarist.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Sacred cows make the best hamburgers. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll get some new underwear today. Well, at least it will be new to you. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’re too mature if you paint the walls of your apartment for a reason other than getting your deposit back. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It will occur to you in a dream -- if #2 pencils are the most popular, why are they still #2? Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Step up your schedule of exercise. Instead of buns of steel, you have buns of cinnamon. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): If you tell your boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire, the very next morning you will have a flat tire.

If today is your birthday: Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
