Stow your tray tables Commercial service returns to Eagle County Regional Airport By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

The Fairest Fare

Commercial air service returned to the Eagle County Regional Airport Tuesday morning with a round of applause as the plane rolled to a stop. It had some of the passengers wondering, “Do they do this for every flight?” Sure, yeah, you betcha. We love it when company comes. The United commuter flight from Denver landed Tuesday morning - about 20 minutes early, thank you very much. This is the 20th anniversary of commercial flights into the Eagle airport, and we’re getting pretty darned good at it. Along with the $22 million runway rebuild, the airport terminal got about $600,000 worth of upgrades, including


American Airlines is currently offering outbound travel from EGE with one way fares from $149, based on a roundtrip purchase to destinations including like Dallas/ Ft. Worth, Miami, Atlanta, or New York. Purchase tickets by Sept. 3 at a new women’s restroom. The runway still has to be grooved – in other words, airport manager Ovid Seifers still has to get his groove on. The airport has been closed since mid Crew and passengers of United Express Flight 7084 were greeted at the Eagle April. Tuesday’s flight carried a bunch of County Regional Airport Tuesday with a festive welcome including freshly baked [See AIRPORT BACK, page 14] cookies from Beaver Creek.

A stock market ripe for a big pullback succumbed Tuesday, plunging when rumors of a bank failure revived investors’ anxiety about the banking industry and the economy as a whole. A batch of economic reports that just weren’t good enough added to the mix. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 185.68, or 2.0 percent, to 9,310.60. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 22.58, or 2.2 percent, to 998.04. The Nasdaq composite index fell 40.17, or 2.0 percent, to 1,968.89.

Elementary schools open today Middle schools started Monday, high schools start Sept. 21 By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Almost 4,000 Eagle County school kids head back to class this week, with elementary students taking their seats today. Middle School students started classes Monday, and the two main high schools open Sept. 21. Projections put the number of students who’s headed back to school this week at 3,970. It breaks out like this: • Elementary schools: 2,722 • Middle schools: 1,073, 40 more than last year • Red Canyon High School: 100 • Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy: 65 • Total So Far: 3,970 The two main high schools, Eagle Valley and Battle Mountain, start classes Sept. 21. Construction crews are wrapping up the new $68 million Battle Mountain campus, and the $28 million Eagle Valley remodel, including the new $3 million Hot Stuff Stadium that opened last Saturday. For now, the school district is projecting 168 fewer students this year than last year’s total of 5,900. The school board mandated the conservative estimates, considering the valley’s struggling business climate. The districtwide enrollment count becomes official in early October, and that’s the number on which the state pays the per-pupil stipend. Colorado’s schools are funded on a per-pupil formula established by the state’s Department of Education. Eagle County receives $7,591.32 per pupil from the Colorado Department of Education, the same as every other county in Colorado. The formula was established to help equalize student funding in Colorado’s poorer counties, such as Lake County and Leadville, and Conjellos County, one of the nation’s poorest areas. Local school district officials figure they’ll get about $40 million. This year, though, the school district won’t get to keep it all. The state government will likely demand 2 percent of that - more than $800,000 - in January, to help cover shortages in the state budget. School districts across the state are facing the same take-back. Eagle County school district is in better shape to

weather this than most. As of June 2008, it carried a $16 million fund balance, school district officials said. They had to spend some of that this year to cover their own revenue drops. The latest predictions say the state will have $400 million less than it needs to make the bills for its next fiscal year. About half the state budget is spent on education.

Spare a room at the town manager’s house? Town goal to find homes for 30 percent of workers By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Some of Vail’s elected officials want to look for new worker housing in an unusual place -- the town manager’s residence. Town Manager Stan Zemler lives in a six-bedroom home in West Vail by himself, he says. It is provided to him by the town as part of his benefits package. Town Councilman Mark Gordon on Tuesday asked if the house could be remodeled to add a “duplex and EHU (employee housing unit) at the town manager’s residence.” The request brought some criticism from other council members, but also enough informal support to move forward. “Whomever the town manager is, we need a quality residence for them, and to have a three-unit complex, I wouldn’t agree is the right solution,” said Andy Daly, mayor pro-tem. “Right now, we don’t have the money to spend on redeveloping the site.” Town zoning would allow for more square footage

to be built on the town-owned home lot, however, said George Ruther, the town’s community development director. Many houses in Vail have “lock-off” units, which are rented out separately. While town codes have changed over the years, they have often allowed builders to add more square footage in return for offering rental homes called EHUs, or employee housing units. One of the town’s goals is to provide housing for 30 percent of the employees who work in Vail. As real estate prices have soared over the years, many homes that were formerly occupied by their owners have been sold to second homeowners who don’t rent them out. The town plans to set aside $500,000 in its 2010 budget as part of its plan to buy up more real estate to make available as price-restricted rental and for sale homes. It also plans to build a duplex on town-owned land on Arosa Drive that is expected to be sold to two lottery winners in May for prices ranging under $400,000.

Road projects may be delayed Vail to spend $3.2 million surplus By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer “Honey -- look at all the money I saved,” might not be the best way to handle Vail’s 2010 budget, Councilman Farrow Hitt said Tuesday. On the other hand, several road projects can be put off, saving an estimated $3.7 million just to start, said Mayor Dick Cleveland. The planned capital improvements budget is $20.8 million, including roads, six new buses, bike paths maintenance and some other things. “We need to look at wants versus needs, and needs is what we’re asking for,” Cleveland said. With Vail’s tax revenues down significantly this year as part of a national economic downtown, town officials are looking carefully at next year’s budget. The town plans to use part of a $3.2 million surplus from 2008 to keep up its same lev-

els of service through 2010, according to town figures. Town officials may be more conservative this year than last in cutting the budget the first time around. Last year, the budget was revised downward several times as the national economy got worse. “Let’s take a conservative approach,” Daly said. “What we’re doing is setting the benchmark or the foundation for the next three years.” Funds for the 2010 budget include $16.6 million in estimated sales tax revenues, the same as the estimate used for this year’s budget and a 15 percent drop from 2008. Estimated sales tax revenues are expected to make up close to 40 percent of next year’s budget, according to town statistics. Real Estate Transfer Tax estimates for the 2010 budget are $4.7 million -- about half the $9.1 million collected in 2008, the town said.

Town officials also recommended trying to save money on the gas budget for the public works department. Vail locks in its gas prices in advance, currently paying the same rate through September 2010 as a hedge against prices going up, said Greg Hall, public works director. Other highlights of the budget include a recommended $1.1 million in marketing dollars to support concers and other special events, including the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival, the Vail Jazz Festival, StreetBeat and Hot Summer Nights concerts, the Vail international Dance Festival, Spring Back to Vail, Oktoberfest, the Teva Mountain Games and the Vail Farmers Market. Also in the cards is a recommended $500,000 to support the purchase of more price-restricted housing, $265,000 to pay for environmental programs, including recycling programs, and $4.7 million to support town parking and transportation operations.

Lionshead parking structure idea gets a reprieve By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer A $2 billion plan to redevelop the Lionshead parking structure with luxury hotels, shops and other amenities got a brief reprieve on Tuesday night. Town council members voted 5-2 in favor of continuing negotiations with Mark Masinter, representative of Texas-based Open Hospitality Partners, until the second meeting in October in the development group’s plans for the property. Mayor Dick Cleveland and Mayor Pro-Tem Andy Daly voted against the measure. Well-known business leaders stood up to support Masinter. Several linked it to hopes for a new conference center on the site. Vail has a more than $9 million pot of money collecting interest that can only be used to build a new conference center. “It seems like it would be great for the economy and great for the economics of the convention center,” said Phil Long, an owner of the Red Lion restaurant and bar. “Hopefully, this deed restriction can get out of the way and things can move forward.”

While the town owns the parking garage, Vail Resorts still holds a deed restriction on the property, which says that it can only be used for parking. Company representatives have said they will not lift the deed restriction unless they get town approvals for plans to build the $220 billion EverVail project west of Lionshead, a new ski village expected to include a new gondola onto the mountain, a hotel, condominiums and shops. “I don’t see a downside of continuing negotiation, as long as the deed restriction is in place. The town is not losing any opportunity to develop the site,” said Matt Morgan, an owner of Sweet Basil restaurant. Daly disagreed, saying the town should not tie up a prime piece of public land with a private developer. Jim Lamont, a representative of the Vail Homeowner’s Association, went one step further, suggesting that Vail residents should get to vote on any potential development on the parking structure site. Masinter spoke on his own behalf, reminding council members how supportive they had been of his project in the past. New plans may give Masinter the right of first refusal to develop on the site, should the deed restriction be lifted.

Tuesday the Rocky Mountain Rail Authority developed the cost estimate for a line connecting Denver International Airport with the Eagle County Airport west of Vail. The route would parallel the heavily traveled Interstate 70 and have intermediate stops in Keystone and Frisco. The draft report estimates it would cost another $5 billion to build a passenger rail route connecting Fort Collins on the north to Pueblo on the south, passing through Denver and Colorado Springs on the way.

As Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget crisis drags on, Philadelphia is taking out a short-term loan from financial services giant JP Morgan Chase, CBS reports. Mayor Michael Nutter announced Tuesday the city will take out the $275 million loan, with a 3 percent interest rate if paid in full by November 30. The rate will increase to 8 percent beginning Dec. 1. The State Senate last week raised the city sales tax by a penny and delayed about $150 million worth of pension payments this year. Pensions eat up a large share of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, roughly 12 percent this year, or $450 million out of a $3.7 billion budget, CBS reports.

Cash for Clunkers ups Ford, misses Chrysler

The Cash for Clunkers program boosted Ford Motor Co.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S. sales in August by 17.2 percent over last year, but shortages of smaller vehicles weighed on rival Chrysler Group LLC. The program, which ended on Aug. 24, drew hordes of buyers into quiet showrooms by offering up to $4,500 toward new, more fuel-efficient cars and trucks. The hefty rebates gave automakers and dealers a muchneeded lift, spurring 690,114 new sales, many of them during August, at a taxpayer cost of $2.88 billion. Other automakers are expected to release U.S. sales figures later Tuesday. Combined, the results are likely to mark the first year-over-year monthly sales gain since October 2007. Chrysler sales fell 15 percent to 93,222 units.

Taste good tax has left the station

Public health officials say behind-the-scene battles on the possible taxation of sugary drinks and junk food are becoming reminiscent of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war on cigarettes, Reuters reported Tuesday. The Congressional Budget Office estimated in December that a tax of 3 cents on every 12-ounce can of soda would raise $50 billion over 10 years. A soda tax is among the revenue streams being eyed as U.S. lawmakers tackle healthcare reform, reports Reuters. A recent Thomson Reuters survey shows about 58 percent of Americans are willing to bear a tax increase of 1 percent or more to support healthcare reform. Supporters of junk food taxes point to the fall in smoking rates after taxes sent cigarette prices soaring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The research around tobacco has shown that large increases on taxes on cigarettes has been the single most effective policy to reduce tobacco use,â&#x20AC;? Mary Story, a dietitian and public health professor at the University of Minnesota told Reuters.

Duncan said in the letter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He will also call for a shared responsibility and commitment on the part of students, parents and educators to ensure that every child in every school receives the best education possible so they can compete in the global economy for good jobs and live rewarding and productive lives as American citizens.â&#x20AC;? The address will be broadcast live at noon Eastern time on the White House Web site www.whitehouse. gov.

Global treaty on illegal fishing finalized


A group of 91 countries reached an agreement Tuesday on a U.N.-backed treaty that aims to leave those engaged in illegal fishing without a safe haven. The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, which brokered the talks, said the treaty will make it harder for illicit catches to be brought ashore and sold on the market. This should reduce the incentive for activities such as fishing without a license, using banned gear, disregarding fishing seasons and making catches that are illegal or undersized. Such behavior can threaten endangered species and damage the legitimate fisheries industry. Under the treaty, foreign fishing vessels wishing to dock in port will be required to request permission in advance and report on their activities and the fish they have aboard, the Rome-based agency said in a statement.

WWII may not be over everywhere

Evidence of continued animosity was not far from the surface as Europe marked the anniversary of WWII’s beginning. Poland pushed for greater acknowledgment from Russia of its role in starting the war, while Russia sought to minimize the impact of Moscow’s 1939 pact with Berlin. Many historians see the signing of the Nazi-Soviet pact - made a week before the hostilities began - as a critical development in Berlin’s march to war. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin sought to downplay the treaty’s importance, saying it was only one factor to be considered in the context of the western powers’ appeasement of Hitler, along with agreements signed by other countries with the Nazis, including a Polish-German nonaggression pact. Poland’s president, Lech Kaczynski defended Poland’s nonaggression treaty, saying that it had also signed one with the Soviet Union, and that neither could be “compared in any way” to the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact.

Rolling Stones mystery death to be re-examined

Forty years after the body of Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones was found floating in his swimming pool following a binge of drugs and drinking, police said Monday they are reviewing the case in light of new evidence turned over by a journalist. Jones’ 1969 drowning was ruled an accident, though friends and fans have long insisted the 27-year-old rock star was murdered, and reports have swirled of a deathbed confession by a building contractor. Police did not give further details or name the journalist. The Mail on Sunday identified him as Scott Jones, an unrelated freelancer.

New twist to reverse discrimination

A white man from South Africa has been given refugee status in Canada after claiming persecution, his lawyer said, angering many in his home country where race remains a highly sensitive issue. A Canadian immigration board panel issued its ruling late last week in the case involving Brandon Carl Huntley, according to his lawyer, Russell Kaplan. Kaplan said Tuesday it’s likely the first time a white South African has been granted refugee status in Canada claiming persecution from black South Africans. The Immigration and Refugee Board refused to comment on the case or to release the decision. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Vail Mountaineer

Philippon fixes Parnevik Vail all-star surgeon expects golfer to make full recovery By Dean Blazier Special to the Mountaineer Early last week Vail’s rock-star surgeon Dr. Marc Philippon performed his second professional arthroscopic hip surgery on golfer Jesper Parnevik -- The first coming back in 2000. The Steadman Hawkins Clinic has a stellar reputation for performing surgeries on high-profile athletes. Philippon’s extensive list of clients includes Alex Rodriguez, Greg Norman, Mario Lemieux, Olympic gold-medal

skater Tara Lipinski and many more. “The surgery Jesper underwent is one that I’ve personally performed on a number of other professional golfers, and I’m confident he will make a full recovery,” Philippon was quoted saying on “I’m very PHILIPPON pleased with how the surgery went.” Parnevik will miss the remainder of the 2009 season on the PGA Tour, but is expected to return at the start of 2010.

No. 1 seed Safina struggles in 1st round Dinara Safina’s performance Tuesday did not help her bid to prove her worthiness as the No. 1 seed. Dinara Safina overcame a long, mistake-filled display of tennis Tuesday to barely avoid becoming the first top-seeded woman to lose in the first round of the U.S. Open. She defeated 167th-ranked Olivia Rogowska of Australia 6-7 (5), 6-2, 6-4 in a match that included 113 unforced errors, 24 double-faults and 15 service breaks over 2 hours, 35 minutes. “I didn’t break any rackets and didn’t get any warnings,” Safina said, when asked if there were any silver linings. “That’s already positive.” She overcame a 3-0 deficit in the third set to avoid becoming the first top-seeded player to be ousted in the first round of any Grand Slam since Martina Hingis lost 6-4, 6-2 to Virginia Ruano Pascual at Wimbledon in 2001. Safina served out her final game at love, forcing errors on Rogowska’s ground strokes during one of the Russian’s few sustained runs of consistency. Safina’s coach, Zeljko Krajan, was clearly having trouble watching it — slumping, scowling and shaking his head from his lonely seat in the stands. Safina moves on, but she will need to clean it up to have a chance to win.

Hawaii seeks to ban freedom of smell Stinky city bus riders soon could get soaked in Hawaii ... HONOLULU (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Honolulu City Council is considering a bill that would impose up to a $500 fine and/or up to six months in jail for public transit passengers convicted of being too smelly. The bill will be heard Thursday in committee. It would make it illegal to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;odors that unreasonably disturb others or interfere with their use of the transit system.â&#x20AC;? It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body odor or offensive fumes that emanates from clothes, personal belongings or animals. Councilmen Rod Tam and Nestor Garcia co-sponsored the anti-odor bill. The American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii says it is concerned with laws that are inherently vague, which opens the door to discriminatory enforcement based on an officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual prejudices.

normal people, along with a few local luminaries. Tony Mauro of KZYR radio was on the plane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a stellar moment for radio,â&#x20AC;? Mauro said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;although they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let us use electronic devices during the flight.â&#x20AC;? The commuter aircraft came in from Denver International Airport. It was Mauroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first time to take the flight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first thing you notice is that it only takes 30 minutes,â&#x20AC;? Mauro said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also impressive that they managed to work a beverage service into that 30 minute flight. I enjoyed a delightful cup of coffee.â&#x20AC;? The landing was smooth and everyone stepped off the plane and into the bright Vail Valley sunshine. Some lo-

cal officials were there, along a few Vail Resorts folks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever walked off a plane to a round of applause,â&#x20AC;? Mauro said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like winning the World Series, but then I saw (county commissioner) Peter Runyon there, and I remembered what was up.â&#x20AC;? Daily flights from Eagle County to Denver resumed Tuesday. Today, Americanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily flights to the Dallas/ Fort Worth Airport resume. The full winter schedule of commercial air service begins after the ski season opens. The Eagle County Regional Airport is one of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most powerful economic engines. It generates almost $1 billion in economic activity and helps create almost 10,000 jobs, according to the Colorado Depart-


ment of Transportation. The airport is served by four major commercial carriers: American, Continental, Delta and United. They provide non-stop service between 13 markets: Atlanta, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis/ St. Paul, Newark, New York/Kennedy and New York/ LaGuardia. United Express will offer four daily non-stop flights from Denver this fall. American Airlines will offer service five days per week from Dallas/Ft. Worth to Vail beginning Sept. 2.

approve it, the county could sell up to $10 million in bonds, or less depending on demand. Homeowners could borrow to fund energy upgrades like solar panels, insulation and more energy efficient windows and doors, and possibly small wind generators. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pay that back by increasing their own property taxes. The program would be completely voluntary and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost taxpayers anything, except those who decide to borrow some money. Voters have to approve it because the bonds would be a multi-year financial obligation. That makes it a TABOR question, and the Colorado Constitution

requires voter approval for tax increases, even voluntary ones. The type of bonds also remains a question, said Eagle County Attorney Bryan Treu, but they will not be general obligation bonds that everyone is required to pay. Homeowners have to qualify. If they want to install energy efficient windows, for example, the energy savings on utility bills have to offset the cost of installation and materials over the life of the loan. County staffer Yuri Kostick made the proposal, and said the funding details are still up in the air. The types of bonds



homes and businesses. The new money raised may pay for a new West Vail fire station and fire truck and new roads and sidewalks. Those two proposed taxes, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;impact feesâ&#x20AC;? as the town refers to them, and a few other existing development fees could be wrapped into one new total, officials said Tuesday in a town meeting. In general, area builders say such taxes could price them out of the market. Some other Colorado resort towns use something called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;new building core and shell fee,â&#x20AC;? said Vail Fire Chief Mark Miller. A representative of Vail Resorts said the company supports the new tax idea for EverVail, a $2 billion plan to build a â&#x20AC;&#x153;ski portalâ&#x20AC;? west of Lionshead with a new gondola, a hotel, shops, condominiums and a new parking garage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly, mitigating for impacts is a given, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very supportive of that,â&#x20AC;? said Kristin Williams, a

would have to be decided, along with ways to pay administrative costs. Boulder County charges a $75 application fee to pay for staff time spent on this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are still a lot of details to be worked out and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something of a leap of faith,â&#x20AC;? said Commissioner Jon Stavney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The good thing about sending this to the voters is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opt-in program. The positives of possibly stimulating the local homebuilding industry with green remodels should also work in its favor.â&#x20AC;? A couple of people from the local Alliance for Sustainability spoke in support. Megan Gilman is president of Active

spokeswoman for the Eagle County affairs of Vail Resorts outside of the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a fire tax, the use tax, employee housing ... weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to put everything on-site,â&#x20AC;? she said. More detailed EverVail plans are expected to be presented to the public in a town council meeting on Sept. 15. The town-owned Timber Ridge Village apartment complex could be another big fee generator if and when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s redeveloped, according to Miller. Timber Ridge would generate more than $200,000 in fire impact fees under a current development plan that calls for apartments for 600 or so people to be built on half of the 10-acre site after the current apartments are torn down. No final agreement has been made with a Texas-based developer expected to build the new apartments. Eagle plans to raise its fees Eagle officials have had great success with similar im-

Energies and chairs the Eagle Valley Alliance for Sustainability and is on the ECO Build steering committee. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard for anyone to stomach an additional assessment on their property, especially now,â&#x20AC;? Gilman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Renewable and energy efficiency can have heavy up front costs. This helps offset that.â&#x20AC;? Commissioner Peter Runyon had a few reservations about how administrative costs would be covered, but voted for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a county whose entire economic engine is based on the natural environment, it is completely appropriate that we are among the leaders in this,â&#x20AC;? he said. [From page 1]

pact fees that town instituted, and they plans to raise them soon, said Kraige Kinney, the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mayor pro-tem and a lieutenant at the Vail Fire Department. The town has been one of the fastest growing communities in the country in recent years, so it has a little bit different economy than Vail at the moment, however, Kinney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No developer has come to complain publicly or privately,â&#x20AC;? Kinney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This merely mitigates it (growth-related infrastructure costs), from my perspective. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not paying its own way, but assisting in paying its own way.â&#x20AC;? In general, towns that want to raise taxes in Colorado must follow a restrictive state regulation popularly known as TABOR, or the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, which usually requires voter approval. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Impact fees,â&#x20AC;? such as the ones being discussed in Vail, are one way towns have raised money for infrastructure improvements in the last decade or so without having to go to voters.
