Into the wild ... Controversial proposal would add 400,000 acres of wilderness, could go before Congress By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Wilderness advocates writing a bill to add 400,000 acres of wilderness to the state want to introduce it to Congress by the end of the year. Hidden Gems is a consortium of envi-

ronmental groups that wants to immediately add 400,000 acres of wilderness in two national forests. Of those, 204,907 acres are in Eagle County. An additional 300,000 acres is possible in the future. Advocates say the time is now, that no one’s making any more wilderness and


it should be preserved while that’s still possible. Opponents call it a land grab and say it’s designed to ban motorized national forest users and mountain bikes from wilderness areas. It would take about a year for a wilderness bill to make its way through con-

Obama talks to House Dems on health care

President Barack Obama discussed health care in a conference call with House members, including liberals wary of his next move on the issue. Obama, who is at Camp David, spoke to leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus on Friday. California Democratic Rep. Lynn Woolsey said lawmakers expressed their commitment to creation of a government-run health care plan. Obama has wavered on whether a public option will be part of a health care bill. “Caucus leaders expressed absolute commitment to the idea of a robust [See THE UPDATE, page 22]

A large herd of sheep gathers on the hillside overlooking Minturn Friday. Avery Cunliffe photo ...

Firefighters in Minturn ‘herd’ there was smoke … Migrating sheep kick up dust Friday, cause fire scare By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor

The Eagle River Fire Protection District responded Friday to several reports of smoke on the ridge line between Vail and Minturn. It turned out to be a herd of sheep. “It happens every year about this time,” said Lieutenant Andy Udoff with Engine 5 out of Minturn, whose Engine 5 was among several crews to respond to the calls. “Sheep cross through the Valley, grazing and kicking up dust along the trails and in the morning light it looks like smoke.” Brad Fanger, who was among those to call in and report the “smoke” sighting, said he was relieved to find out it wasn’t a blaze.

“A couple other people and myself saw it and said ‘That’s really up there, that could be hard to get to,’” said Fanger. “Then we saw it was just a bunch of sheep.” Fanger, who moved here in 1982, says he could see the sheep from his office at Vail Coach in Minturn. He says it brought back memories of the early ‘80s, when he remembers herds of sheep running through Meadow Drive in Vail Village. “That used to be not so unusual of a sight,” said Fanger. “Not the sheep head through here and we call the fire department.” In addition to Minturn’s Engine No. 5, Avon’s Engine No.7 and a brush rig from Vail also responded to the calls.

Regulating the reefer ... County eyeing new lid laws for medical marijuana biz By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Here’s one way to look at Tuesday’s medical marijuana resolution: If the Eagle County commissioners approve a set of regulations, you won’t be able to build your church, school, or child care center within 200 feet of a medical marijuana dispensary. It also works the other way around. The commissioners will take a look at a resolution designed to keep medical marijuana dispensaries from popping up like kudzu, or like other kinds of rapidlygrowing plant life – whatever it might be. The meeting is 10 a.m. Tuesday at the county building, 500 Broadway in Eagle. If approved, the temporary regulations would take effect immediately and be in place for 30 days. A public hearing scheduled for early October. Commissioner buzz kill? If the commissioners step on proponents’ buzz Tuesday, the county’s planning department will start putting together permanent regulations, you know, The Man Creating Hassles designed to Keep Us Down. Those regs will require medical marijuana dispensaries to wade through the review process, which is, like, real procedural bummerhood. That could be a real buzz kill. It takes about three months to wade through the process and at every turn there are lots and lots of opportunities for public input – both with the county’s planning commission and the county commissioners. It remains unclear whether you testimony will be stricken from the record if you use the words “Dude!” or “Wow!” It’s the law, dude Nine years ago, Colorado voters gave a collective “Wow!” in approving selling medical marijuana in the Centennial State. In Eagle County, 56 percent of voters gave it their official “Yo!” So it is the law, but not in an E=MC Squared kind of way, which is pretty much indisputable, unless you really do believe in a parallel universe – and since this is a story about medical marijuana … well, you get it. Nope, this is more like the laws governing death and taxes, and you don’t have to like either of those. “There are only 69 registered users in Eagle County, so it looks like your business will be coming off I-70 and I am against that!” said local opponent Buddy Sims. “After the word gets out that Eagle-Vail and Edwards will allow three medical marijuana stores, there

will be more to follow.” Right now, there are two dispensaries in Eagle County. So far, Vail, Avon, and Gypsum have banned new stores, saying federal law outweighs the state statute, which is a little vague even though it does not include the word “Wow!” And not that people keeping track of this sort of thing are paranoid, but the Denver Post is reporting that, so far, of the 10,000 prescriptions for medical marijuana, 75 percent have been written by 15 bogarting physicians. Of those, one-third were written by two extremely bogarting physicians, which is way more productive than you’d think they’d be. In an e-mail exchange with Sims, local entrepreneur Heather Blaine says there are already controls in place. “I will only be selling to patients who have received their cards, which must be signed by a medical doctor. As of a few months ago there were six minors with cards, and to receive them both parents must sign, as well as the doctor.” She said there’s an eight-week backlog to get a card. That’s longer than the wait for your permit to carry a concealed weapon, which runs two and three months, according to the Eagle County Sheriff’s office. Of course, if you really need it, this is serious. Blaine says a couple cancer and multiple sclerosis patients she has spoken to are happy to have this option closer to them.

A heel stompin’, boogie rollin’, sugar footin’ good time was had by all at 4 Eagle Ranch Thursday night. Country Dance Night at the ranch saw its last sunset of the summer during a public dance featuring line dancing instruction and a performance by country singer Walker Williams. “I’m having a great time,” said Sarah Pounder, a dancer from Edwards. “Dancing is the most intimate thing you can do without having intercourse!” Walker Williams has lived in Colorado most of his life, minus a stint in Los Angeles where he polished his acting skills. He has a huge fan base in the Valley. “I used to play all up and down the I-70 corridor, in fact I had a keyboarder who used to call me the ‘king of the I-70 corridor,’” said Williams. “A lot of people used to come out and see us and then when some of the smaller clubs closed, there really was no venue out there.” Williams said of all the places he has performed in the west, Colorado country line dancers are the most sophisticated. “They can appreciate the way I put my show together because it allows them to incorporate all of the dance moves into each song,” he said. “Nobody else out of Colorado does that, I would consider the people in the I-70 area - especially in Denver - to be very sophisticated because they all do every dance step there is.” Williams had missed seeing all the familiar faces from his previous years of playing venues northwest of Denver. “There’s so many people here that I get to see maybe one or two times per year because there aren’t any venues out here,” said Williams. “They really are such great dancers, years ago I used to think they were applauding for each other, not me.” The music series, held every first Thursday this sum[See XXXXX, page XX]

Petting zoo, zipline still on at 4Eagle

Whether it’s Labor Day weekend or not, 4 Eagle Ranch in Wolcott always has a wide variety of activities that give you a true taste of the modern West. What we like best among a host of other fun things to do, is the chance to feed Reject, a buffalo orphaned at birth who is now at the ranch’s informal petting zoo, said Tom Backus, the owner. He was a pet of a family north of McCoy who ran around the yard with a dog and a pony before he got too big. “We’ve had him for 17 years. He’ll eat out of your hand, and he slobbers, he doesn’t bite,” Backus said. Kids also will like the goats and pigs and rabbits, the draft horses that pull the wagons on the wagon rides, the other horses for horseback riding, and the zipline. “You can entertain the children without spending much money,” Backus said. “We’re the last one that’s even close to the Vail-Beaver Creek market to offer this.” This summer for the first time, the ranch is offering rafting and rock climbing, Jeep and Hummer tours, along with all of its other events, including the wildly popular zipline stretched across the canyon. There’s a diverse lunch menu that’s not very expensive, and families on vacation seem to like hanging out together at the ranch for the day. “Certainly our vacationing tourist business isn’t bad this summer. We re-created ourselves … and that all seems to be working,” Backus said. —Beth Potter

And sometimes builders pick up the extra cost some new, high-end homes as well as outdoor patios near the ski slopes.

In the near future, new homes in Vail could be required to have more energy-efficient water boilers for heating and thicker, energy-saving windows. Builders, architects and others interested in the potential new rules are invited a workshop from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday at the Vail Town Hall, 75 S. Frontage Road, to discuss them. While putting stricter rules in place may make it more expensive to build, many of them pay for themselves in a short period of time, said Martin Haeberle, Vail’s chief building official. “Everyone is installing these new boilers (for example). It’s such a cost savings that it doesn’t need to be enforced, regulatory-wise,” Haeberle said. “It’s not that dramatic of a difference, and the payback is fairly quick.” New energy-saving windows are expected to cost an estimated 2 to 5 percent more than the windows builders commonly use now, Haeberle said. The town also plans to limit the size of gas lines that can power outdoor fire pits as well, Haeberle said. Such pits are a popular outdoor amenity for

Outdoor fire pit rules “That’s the energy-saving thing. It doesn’t make much sense to have 92 percent efficient boiler when you’re blasting 300,000 BTUs of heat, out in the backyard,” Haeberle said. While Avon already has passed new building codes, in general, when the rules get more restrictive, they cost builders and buyers more money, said Buz Reynolds, an Avon town councilman and a builder. “Any time we turn around, builders are getting nailed,” Reynolds said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s Vail or Avon or Eagle County, it just feels like if you’re one of the last ones, you have to pay more. That’s what it feels like.” Many of the community’s architects, builders and others have been involved in the building code discussions so far, Haeberle said. Haeberle will give a presentation at Tuesday’s meeting, as will Mike McGee, the deputy fire chief. To look at Vail’s proposed new building code ordinance, go to the Town of Vail’s Web site: Look for the “community development department” tab, then click on: “2009 ICC Code Review Process.”

The group also supports educational programs and has funded Jack’s Place, a residential spot for cancer patients at the Shaw Regional Cancer Center, as well as the Sonnenalp Breast Diagnostic Imaging Center at the Edwards center. If you didn’t register in advance, the Shuffle costs $30 for cancer survivors, and $35 per person today. Kids ages 12 and under are free.

5 – 9 p.m. Inspired by the likes of The Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, The Rolling Stones, Talking Heads and Phish, Hustle retains its own unique style that sets it apart from other bands. “If we don’t get people dancing, then we haven’t done our job,” says drummer Pete Howe. “We sometimes think of ourselves as more of a rock band than a jam band, but when we get to those jam moments, we’ll definitely go with it.”

Positive vibrations abound with a beat to keep you on your dancing feet. Many have considered his charismatic performance as live theatre where no show is alike and audience members become participants in the experience.

Wes Yoakam at The Club, Vail

Show starts at 10 p.m. The Club: “Wes solo puts out more sound than most three-piece groups. With the twelve-string guitar, loopers, kick drum thing, and the other toys he’s got going up there, it really sounds more like a band than a solo artist. He also has a great rapport with the crowd, and he always knows what they want to hear and how to get them going.”

Alan Miller wasn’t welcome to set his lobster traps in waters around Matinicus Island, Maine. The 59-year-old Wheelers Bay man reckoned he was entitled to fish Matinicus waters because his wife, Janan, and his father-in-law, Vance Bunker, were lifelong Matinicus residents. Somebody cut the lines to many of his traps that year and on the morning of July 20, Marine Patrol officers were called to Steamboat Wharf, where Matinicus fishermen were circling their boats around Miller’s vessel outside the harbor. Janan leveled a 12-gauge shotgun at lobsterman Chris Young and David Ames during the altercation, according to investigators’ reports. When Ames tried to push the shotgun barrel away, Bunker shot him in the neck with a pistol from his holster and fired at him, police said. The bullet fragmented upon impact, with parts of it coming within 3 millimeters of Young’s spinal column, according to a lawsuit he filed against Bunker, which also said Young suffered serious neurological damage in his hands and arm.

From all that we’ve seen thus far, Mr. Rangel has violated that trust continually and seemingly without care.” The major new asset listed was a credit union checking account valued between $250,000 and $500,000.

Donald Trump’s annual six pack

In an interview with, a choreographer of the Miss Universe pageant revealed Donald Trump handpicks six of the 15 top contestants because judges often miss the most beautiful ones. “And it’s just kind of common knowledge that he picks six of the top fifteen single-handedly,” choreographer Michael Schwandt told the website. “And, his reason for doing so, as he told me and he’s told the girls before, is that he left it all up to preliminary judging in the past and some of the most beautiful women, in his opinion, were not in the top fifteen and he was kind of upset about that. And he decided that he would pick a certain number and let the judges pick a certain number.”

Thunder may be healthy in thighs

A study published in the British Medical Journal revealed people with small thighs run a higher risk of developing heart disease and untimely death. The study found that men and women whose thighs are less than 23.6 inches in circumference are more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease, and die prematurely, compared to people with thicker thighs. Nevertheless, people with thighs much wider than 23.6 inches did not fare any better than those whose thighs hovered just above the threshold. The study, which monitored 1,436 men and 1,380 women over a period of 12.5 years, found that thigh size was an independent cause of heart health from other known risk factors, such as smoking, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Swiss minister Christa Markwalder, told the NY Daily News, when Moammar Khadafy comes to New York Sept. 23, he will ask the UN to dismantle Switzerland and parcel out the land to neighboring France, Germany and Italy. Libya-Swiss relations became strained a year ago, when Khadafy’s youngest son Hannibal was arrested in a Geneva hotel for beating two servants with a belt and a coat hanger. Enraged by the arrest, Libya recalled diplomats, withdrew $5 billion from Swiss banks, closed the Tripoli office of Nestle and threatened to cut oil deliveries. Two Swiss businessmen were barred from leaving the country until Libya received an apology for Hannibal’s arrest. Two weeks ago, Swiss President Hans-Rudolf Merz apologized in Tripoli for the arrest and Libya promised to let the hostages go by Sept. 1. They have yet to be freed.

She has charisma, and she performs, so she’s not a stranger to an audience, and I would cast her in many different ways,” Allen told the media during a June visit to France. “I don’t have a story at the moment, but you know, maybe even I’ll ask her, if she’s interested.” The French newspaper Le Parisan reported Friday: “Carla Bruni has accepted his proposition to star in one of his films. Her acting experience, however, is rather limited.” Bruni, a model and singer, had a small role in 1994 movie “Pret-A-Porter.”

Conspiracy theorist convinces Neil Armstrong moon landing was fake

Two legitimate Bangladeshi newspapers picked up a fake news story reported by The Onion that Neil Armstrong admitted faking the lunar landing, the Scavenger reports. The Daily Manab Zamin and the New Nation ran with the story, attributing the Armstrong bombshell to the “Onion News Network, Lebanon, Ohio. “Back in August, Neil Armstrong admitted at a press conference that the lunar landing was an elaborate fabrication engineered by the government,” The Onion reported in jest. “He believed the entire event was created in a soundstage in New Mexico, that wind from an air duct made the flag ripple and those moon rocks seen in the original footage came from the NASA prop department.” Armstrong is quoted in the Onion’s article as saying “It has become painfully clear to me that on July 20, 1969, the Lunar Module under the control of my crew did not in fact travel 250,000 miles over eight days, touch down on the moon, and perform various experiments, ushering in a new era for humanity.” —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

mer, was the first string of public venues held at the ranch since Tom Baccus acquired the property more than 19 years ago. “We’ve done a whole lot of corporate stuff, weddings and rehearsal dinners and a whole lot of country dance nights, but they’ve never opened to the public until this summer,” said Baccus, adding that the series mostly included local bands, but Williams was asked out by special request. “Our local bands are great but we kept hearing from the country dancers about this guy Williams. They all talked about this Walker Williams and kept saying how great it would be if we could get him in.” Baccus echoed Williams sentiment about the lack of country western dance venues in our area. “There aren’t many places to country dance in the Rockies, we get people out from Summit County and Garfield County,” said Baccus. “Our setting is a little different because our ranch is an old homesteaded ranch and the original buildings are still here. This venue fits this event very well.” The performance was held in the ranch’s beautiful Old Carriage House, built in the 1880’s. The barn used to store carriages, but has such kickin’ acoustics, many live bands have performed and recorded albums inside. “My ear isn’t tuned into this stuff, but apparently the acoustics are great because it’s all wood,” said Baccus. “Our stoning fits the country western dance theme.” Dancer Sue Rochford of Frisco agreed. “This is the greatest thing!” she said, stomping along with the music. “Great setting, great music, great people.” Country Dance Night with the Walker Williams Band also featured an hour of country line dance instruction from Dean and Linda Wolz, who have been teaching dance at the ranch for 18 years. More information on Williams is available at and on, which has all his current tour dates and contact information.

Cannonball! UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania history buff who recreates firearms from old wars accidentally fired a 2-pound cannonball through the wall of his neighbor’s home. Fifty-four-year-old William Maser fired a cannonball Wednesday evening outside his home in Georges Township that ricocheted and hit a house 400 yards away. The cannonball, about two inches in diameter, smashed through a window and a wall before landing in a closet. Authorities say nobody was hurt. State police charged Maser with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct. No one answered the phone Friday at Maser’s home. He tells WPXI-TV recreating 19th century cannons is a longtime hobby. He says he is sorry and he will stop shooting them on his property, about 35 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

Us vs.. Them Hidden Gems has been meeting with almost anyone capable of maintaining a pulse for two years, changing the plan to accommodate as many national forest as possible, said Sloan Shoemaker of the Wilderness Workshop. “These are not areas where people play now,” said Susie Kincade, Hidden Gems outreach coordinator, adding that they’re being managed as wilderness. That’s one step away from the actual designation, she said. Snowmobile and motorized groups say they’re being stampeded by Birkenstocks. “They haven’t talked to us, and we’d love to have a word with them,” said Lance Trujillo, president of the Holy Cross Powder Hounds, a regional snowmobile club that maintains snowmobile trails in Eagle County. Trujillo and other motorized users say the proposal will ban them from hundreds of thousands of acres in the White River and Gunnison national forests. They also say that by submitting their own bill directly to congress, the Hidden Gems group is sidestepping the U.S. Forest Service, and that’s where changes in national forest policy and management are traditionally handled. If supporters get the congressional approval they’re working for, they don’t need Forest Service or BLM approvals, said Trujillo. “It takes a year to get something passed through congress, and if they can get it rolling soon enough they can get it done before the 2010 election, before the balance of power could shift,” Trujillo said. “It’s not just a snowmobile issue. It’s ATV, mountain bikers – it’s everyone,” Trujillo said. “We do not condone people misusing the national forest, but this is a much bigger impact than just the motorized users.”

The existing and proposed wilderness areas are detailed in this map. The blue outline indicates White River National Forest, the green is existing wilderness areas, the turquise represents the current wilderness proposal, the yellow future wilderness proposal.

Local Lee Rimel is a supporter who’s been with Hidden Gems since its inception. He says he’s a little surprised by the backlash. Eagle County has 1,000 miles of mountain bike trails in Eagle County, and that will not change with this proposal, he says. “There’s a perception that there’s something evil about Hidden Gems,” Rimel said. “I’ve been in the discussion for two years, and as a mountain biker I’m completely unaffected. The White River National Forest Travel Management Plan is really their enemy. It’s coming later this year and it’s going to close a bunch of trails.” That’s another part of the problem, says the Holy Cross Powder Hounds’ Trujillo. “There are roads that look like cherry stems reaching into the areas they’re proposing as wilderness,” Trujillo said. “The Forest Service will likely just close those, and that’s another area off limits to motorized users.” Both sides can play the economic impact card. Motorized recreation pours an estimated $209 million into the economies of Eagle and Summit counties, Trujillo said. “I’m not a rocket scientist, but that’s a big number, especially in

this economy,” Trujillo said. On the other hand, hunting and fishing are powerful economic engines, creating thousands jobs statewide and almost 900 in Eagle County. These proposed wilderness areas are critical wildlife habitat and important watershed areas, Kincade said. “We’ve already taken out 100,000 acres after working with motorized and mechanized interests. Half of that is in Eagle County,” said Kincade. “We have been listening, and we are certainly willing to talk to our neighbors. “If anyone has an issue, come talk to us now. Let’s get the facts.” They’ll probably never agree on politics or philosophy, but if they sit down with a map the two sides can probably agree on specific tracts of land where motorized lovers can ride, Shoemaker said. Despite all of our human ingenuity, you cannot build more wilderness. “If you have something that cannot be replaced, it makes sense to preserve it,” said Kincade. “These landscapes are key to our economy and maintaining a place where people can go where there is silence, where we are just a non-intrusive visitor.”
