BMHS open for business Ribbon cut on new high school By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Louise Funk was resplendent Thursday in her plastic frock, the one that encouraged everyone to “Vote Yes on 3B” six years ago, the most ambitious public project in Eagle County history.

And they did it. Thursday, six years later, Funk cut the ribbon under a brilliant blue sky to officially open the new Battle Mountain High School building. The $120 million 3B package revolved around a new Battle Mountain building and renovations [See BMHS OPEN, page 22]

A surprise drop in unemployment claims couldn’t fuel another day of gains for the stock market. Stocks posted modest losses in quiet trading Thursday after three days of gains. Traders found little in the weekly employment data, or in reports on housing and manufacturing, to provide new insight into the economy. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 7.79, or 0.1 percent, to 9,783.92. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 3.27, or 0.3 percent, to 1,065.49. The Nasdaq composite index fell 6.40, or 0.3 percent, to 2,126.75.

The German celebrations continue this weekend in Vail, with Oktoberfest action kicking off tonight at 5 p.m. Festival attendees will enjoy a wide array of German-inspired food and beverages including Beck’s beer and Jagermister shots, as well as dance to the live music from Bavarian musicians, Rhinelanders Band and Helmut Fricker. This weekend’s schedule of events will emulate those offered in Lionshead Village with the exception of a headliner performance by local favorite Laughing Bones on Saturday evening and Oktoberfest’s Fun Run on Sunday morning. “Helmut really got the crowds dancing in Lionshead Village last weekend,” said Missy Johnson of Highline Sports & Entertainment. “From the Chicken Dance to the Electric Slide, kids and adults alike were out enjoying the German tunes. I can’t wait to see the masses return for Oktoberfest in Vail Village, as Vail’s Oktoberfest is historically a hugely attended event!” said Johnson. Saturday’s festivities will commence at noon at the Checkpoint Charlie’s concert venue with live music from the Rhinelanders Band and Helmut Fricker. In addition, a Kid’s Area with children’s

Colo. man faces more questioning in terror probe

A man identified by law enforcement as having a possible link to al-Qaida met with the FBI for a second day Thursday as part of a terrorism investigation in New York and Colorado. Najibullah Zazi, 24, didn’t speak to reporters, but defense attorney Arthur Folsom said he did not expect his client to be arrested. If agents intended to jail Zazi, they probably would have done so already, he said. Agents questioned Zazi for hours on Wednesday and searched his apartment and the home of his aunt and uncle in Aurora. [See THE UPDATE, pages 10-11]

On Sunday, September 20 the Oktoberfest Fun Run opens the final day of Vail Oktoberfest at 9:00a.m. Benefiting the Children’s Garden of Learning, the Fun Run is a friendly competition for all ages.

Bud Man, bad biker, Dell dude, drug darlin’ EDITOR’S NOTE: Every day or two we take a cruise through some local police reports, so we can bring you our favorites. The general theme is two-fold: (1) Sometimes we’re all this silly, and (2) this stuff is funny because it’s not happening to you … this time. At Least Drink Good Beer: Bud Man was being loud, which falls well outside Ed McMahon’s advice when he tells you to drink responsibly. He was singing along to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Gimme Three Steps” at decibel levels that rivaled a Concorde takeoff. As luck would have it, the Sheriff’s deputies driving by turned out to be big ol’ Skynyrd fans who wanted to see just how many people were at this Lynyrd Love-In. They knocked politely, Mrs. Bud Man let them in. They observed Bud Man sitting on the floor, they observed a Bud by Bud Man, they observed Bud Man rise from the floor, sort of the same way a water buffalo scrambles out of a water hole when a hunger cheetah shows up. They asked Bud Man, “Is this our Bud?” Bud Man replied, “Nope, I’ve never seen it before.” The Lynyrd-lovin’ deputies picked up the beer, noticed that it was still cold, and noticed by the way Bud Man was stumbling that this was probably not the first time that night he’d sampled the fruit of the brewers’ art. Bud Man, it turns out, was on the business end of a restraining order that prohibited him from drinking alcohol. So they all climbed into the deputies’ patrol truck and headed to the Eagle County Crossbar Hotel, belting out ballads all along the way, learning that you can travel most of the way from Wolcott to Eagle while playing the air guitar to the sweet strains of Sweet Home Alabama and Free Bird. Bad Guy Biker: Biker Bad Guy was out for an afternoon ride, and of course that meant he’d have to ride his mountain bike all over the 17th and 18th greens of a local golf course. So one of the golfers, who we’ll call Plaid Man and His Plaid Patrol, set off in their golf carts in hot pursuit of Biker Bad Guy – or maybe it was luke warm pursuit since Plaid Man was driving a golf cart. Like Sir Lancelot in a jousting match, Plaid Man and His Plaid Patrol poked a course flag through Bad Guy Biker’s front wheel, sending Bad Guy Biker sailing tail over teakettle and onto terra firma. When the authorities arrived, they learned that Bad Guy Biker apparently thinks gold course greens are a mountain

bike path because he rides over them regularly, and that Plaid Man and His Plaid Patrol were so serious about apprehending the villain that they stopped playing golf to take up do their civic duty and scold the scoundrel for his scofflaw ways. Plaid Man and his Plaid Patrol intend to pursue this travesty to the Halls of Justice, which will most likely go poorly for Bad Guy Biker because the judge he’ll end up with is an avid golfer. Dude, You Got a Dell: Big Foot’s burglary techniques are effective, but not subtle. He heists his big foot and kicks in the driver’s side window of an automobile, then steals the stuff inside. Not original, but it seems to serve Big Foot well. But here’s the thing. Sheriff’s deputies showed up, took a look around and found a Honda sedan’s window kicked in, and a Ford F-150 pickup truck, which means Big Foot is pretty flexible to get his big foot up that high. Then they found a footprint on a Saturn’s window, which withstood Big Foot’s big foot. A Saturn. The company that makes Saturn, Government Motors (General Motors), announced it will close Saturn plants so it can ship more jobs to cheap overseas labor, even though Saturn is the only one that stood up to Big Foot. By the way, Big Foot absconded with a Dell laptop and a digital camera. Authorities are looking for a guy with feet the size of U.S. Navy gunboats. Following the Felony Trail: Drug Darlin’ was pretty easy to track. She started in Basalt and hit almost every pharmacy between here and there, using fake prescriptions to buy narcotic painkillers. One pharmacist called another, and they finally found her in western Eagle County, where Drug Darlin’ was trying to have the same prescription filled for the third time. Actually, it was filled seven times on seven different dates. The Sheriff’s deputy showed up, put seven and seven together and arrested Drug Darlin’. She was a model arrestee, informing the deputy that her left handcuff was loose and she could probably slip out of it, but that it would do her very little good to slip out of her left handcuff because she was right handed. Be that as it may, the deputy cranked the cuffs down a little tighter, which didn’t bother Drug Darlin’ much because she’d filled her prescription for narcotic pain killers seven times. She’ll need them. She’s looking at three felony counts.

Vail Mountaineer

Segways can go through snow Lionshead Sage Outdoor Adventures to do winter tours By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Sage Segway Tours owner Darryl Bangert can’t wait for winter. He is working on new routes in Vail on which to take the motorized devices throughout the year. Segways can travel through a foot and a half of powder, he says. Vail town council members this week approved an ordinance that allows Segway operations to continue through the beginning October 2010. Riders stand up on the oversized devices, which are limited mechanically to go 8 miles an hour or less in Vail. In general, the devices can travel at up to 12 miles an hour. “We think the winter clientele will be better than the summer clientele,� Bangert said. “A lot of skiers come from all over, and they’re very athletic, adventuresome crowd.� More than 800 customers took tours or rented the devices individually in the last two and a half months, Bangert says. Probably another 4,000 folks expressed interest. An hour tour costs $75, according to the company Web site. “On every tour, we were approached every time by people,� Bangert said. “The interesting thing we found, is you either love ‘em or you hate ‘em. People have an attitude about Segways.� One broken pelvis Folks who don’t like seeing the devices include Nancy Rondeau, a Vail resident. She called them a “circus parade� at a town council meeting earlier this week. Police received two negative phone calls about Segway use in Vail, said Steve Wright, the police department’s operations commander. In addition, a Segway customer broke her pelvis in a single-person accident and went to the hospital in an ambulance, he said. “I’m anxious to see how they conduct themselves with the extension on the ordinance,� Wright said. Just like a skier or a bicyclist or others outside exercising, it’s important for Segway users to be courteous, Bangert said. Customers sign something saying they acknowledge the need to be polite. “You’re going to have those people who are on a Segway, a bike, walking or skiing, that

think they’re the center of the universe,� Bangert said. “It’s that basic human attitude of how you perceive yourself and other people around you. “But 99 percent of the interaction is positive,� Bangert added. “There are thousands and thousands of people who love it.�

Calvary Chapel sends aid to South African settlement By Dawn Witlin Special to the Mountaineer Dwellers of the South African settlement of Freedom Park live in homes comprised mostly of metal and wood, with no formal government and a staggering population of children orphaned by the AIDS disease. Calvary Chapel of Avon is raising funds to send members of its church to the squatter camp outside of Johannesburg, to help operate an after school program for those orphans who mostly live with their grandparents. The nine person team from Calvary will partner with Tentmaker Ministries, a non-profit in Breckenridge which already provides support to Freedom Park through volunteer work and fund raising. “Our goal is to encourage the people there doing the work already and to help them implement some new programs,” said Nate Morris, assistant pastor at Calvary Chapel. “Most of the children we’re working with don’t have any family members…we’re attempting to come alongside some of these kids and give them some hope for the future.” The after school program Cavalry will be assisting in is sometimes the only food source for the children who live in Freedom Park. “The kids get out of school and come to the program, get a meal - and a lot of them may not get another meal that day - play games and sing songs and read prayers,” said Morris. “Racism is still pretty prevalent there, so even people from another country coming there and living with them encourages the kids and gives them hope.” Amanda Ohrt, 25, of Avon has been a member of Calvary Chapel for nearly a year and hopes to make a difference in the lives of the children of Freedom Park while she’s volunteering. “I’m excited to see what the Lord is gong to do while we’re there and how we personally can be changed because seeing people’s lives change because of you being there sometimes helps you more than the people you were helping in the first place,” she said. Ohrt also hopes the group’s efforts will help undo some racial stigmas that have plagued South Africa. “Segregation down there is still pretty big,” said Ohrt. “White people do not interact with black people, so for us to go down there and interact is gong to be a huge thing for these children.” To send the team to Freedom Park for three weeks in the beginning of November, Calvary Chapel needs to raise roughly $3,000 per person, which will mostly provide airfare, Morris said. The church will hold a car wash from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

10th Mountain Division soldier awarded Medal of Honor President Barack Obama on Thursday gave his first Medal of Honor to a U.S. soldier who was killed while trying to save his comrade on an Afghan battlefield. 30-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Jared Monti of Raynham, Mass. was leading a scouting mission along the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan when a helicopter deployed to resupply the patrol blew their cover. Taliban fighters converged, and Monti called for backup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bullets and heavy machine gunfire ricocheting across the rocks. Rocket-propelled grenades raining down. Fire so intense that weapons were shot right out of their hands,â&#x20AC;? Obama said, explaining the battle to a packed audience at the White House. One of Montiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s men, Pvt. Brian Bradbury of St. Joseph, Mo., was shot during the encounter. Monti, who enlisted at age 17, twice left cover and ran into the open under intense enemy fire to retrieve the wounded soldier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jared Monti did something no amount of training can instill. His patrol leader said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go, but Jared said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No, he is my soldier. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to get him,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Obama recounted. On Montiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third attempt, he was struck by a grenade and died on the field. Three others, including Bradbury, also died during the fight. Monti previously was awarded a Bronze Star, Purple Heart, five Army Commendation Medals, four Army Achievement Medals and three National Defense Service Medals. The ceremony was attended by several of Montiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fellow servicemen men of the Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10th Mountain Division, Obama noted. The 10th Mountain Division was formed during WWII at Camp Hale. Veterans of the 10th Mountain Division helped make the sport of skiing into a big name sport. Vail, Aspen, Sugarbush, Crystal Mountain, and Whiteface Mountain are but a few of the ski resorts built by 10th Mountain veterans. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Associated Press contributed to this report

Confidential Compassionate Counseling

Frogs Gone Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; records second album

s Providing psychological services for adults, children and teens.

New material previewed tonight at Main St. Grill show By Geoff Mintz Special to the Mountaineer Frogs Gone Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has a crazy schedule these days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; crazy in a good way. The group, which you probably remember as the winner of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hot Summer Nightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fan band competition, is recording its second studio album, while maintaining an aggressive touring calendar. Their next stop is tonight at Main St. Grill in Edwards. Two of the four band members, Trevor Jones and Andrew Portwood, are now living in Avon full-time. Trevor has been working at an Elementary School down-valley (go Bear Cubs, he says), and Andrew has been giving guitar lessons. They have been commuting down to Evergroove recording studio in Evergreen the last couple weeks to record their new album, which is slated for release in early 2010. Located out in the woods, ten miles off the main road, Evergroove has a cozy, log-cabin feel. The fridge is always stocked with beer, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot-tub waiting after a long day of recording. Evergroove is one of the only recording studios in the country to use homegrown solar energy, which is generated on-site to power its facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The quality of audio that gets tracked inside those walls is inspiring to be a part of,â&#x20AC;? says lead guitarist Trevor Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our producer Brad Smalling is such a positive, focused guy. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make a tiny suggestion that will open up big musical doors for us.â&#x20AC;? Frogs Gone Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has come a long way, both musically and geographically, since they recorded their debut album â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tell Me Trueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; over two years ago. Since then, the Frogs have traveled across the country, logging extended stints in New Orleans, where many of the tunes on their new album were written and performed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The time we spent out on the road was a valuable tool in recording the new album,â&#x20AC;? says guitarist/vocalist Andrew Portwood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a deeper pulse, warm melodies, more grit and distortion on the new album. We have been experimenting with some new sounds and movements.â&#x20AC;? Making a record At their live shows, Frogs Gone Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will never play a song the same way twice, and that attitude of perpetual development carries over into the studio. One of the guys will approach the rest of the band with an idea or skeleton of a tune. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take that idea and improvise around it, try to build new parts around the main theme. Some of these skeletons will turn out to be nuanced compositions a year or so down the road, explained Jones. Andrew Portwood says a song is much like a good story; it has a beginning, middle and end, with a twist somewhere along the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes if we are hung up on a song or section, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play it in live performance to hear it in a different setting, or weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try something new with the chorus or bridge.â&#x20AC;? Putting it all together, an album is like a picture taken in time, Portwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is where we are in our lives

and gives the listener a way to connect with our emotions and visions.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making an album is like adding layers onto a cake one step at a time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from drums, bass and guitar to vocals,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each take can be slightly different and finding â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is always a fun debate.â&#x20AC;? The New Orleans influence New Orleans took their music in a new direction, the band says. The city influenced songs like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Shakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Never or Now,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which they say embody the big easy feeling of the city, the nightlife and morning-after. Trevor Jones said that there is something about New Orleans that carries a lot of spiritual juju, which the band was able to harness when they were writing music there. He says thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the stuff songs are made of. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about that relationship you just got into or out of, or the hyped-up scene you play music in. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about those old world vibes you can feel in your bones, the heavy energy of all the things that have happened in the world before you came along, which you use to try and make sense of it all,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. Recording in the 21st Century Traditionally, record labels spend hundreds of thousands financing an album. Before personal computers, a band would spend months in a studio getting everything right and then spend the rest of their musical lives paying the record label back for their â&#x20AC;&#x153;generousâ&#x20AC;? down payment, explains Jones. Although recording has gotten cheaper thanks to the modern technology, finding a financier and someone who truly knows how to run the software remains a challenge. The record industry used to have control over recording costs, but now it is much more cost effective to release an album independently and still get world-wide distribution with iTunes and other internet outlets, says Portwood. The new Frogs Gone Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; album will be available early next year on Mountain Size Records. Their current record Tell Me True is available on iTunes and at your local record shop. The show at Main St. Grill starts at 10 p.m.

Huffington Post questions Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renewing of Patriot Act

Political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson on Wednesday criticized President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to renew the Patriot Act after pledging as a Senatorial candidate in 2003 that it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;shoddy and dangerous.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obama justifies keeping nearly all of Bushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terror war provisions in place with the standard rationale that the government must have all the weapons needed to deal with the threat of terrorism, even legally and constitutionally dubious weapons,â&#x20AC;? Hutchinson wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That, of course, was the Bush and Cheney stock line.â&#x20AC;? Hutchinson noted that Obama has weakened certain sharp points of the Act when it comes to procedures of torture and due process of suspected terrorists.

As days tick off the calendar, the life span of the much-ballyhooed tax credit for first-time homebuyers is drawing to an end â&#x20AC;&#x201D; unless Congress decides to extend it. There have been more than a dozen bills introduced in Congress to prolong the life of the tax credit past the Nov. 30 deadline, and on Thursday Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid endorsed the idea of extending the credit for an additional six months. The housing market has been devastated in Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home state of Nevada. This week, the White House said its economic team

Madoff home sold

An unidentified would-be buyer or buyers snapped up Bernard Madoffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Long Island beach house â&#x20AC;&#x201C; offering more than $8.75 million - within days after the U.S. Marshals Service put the seized property up for sale, a spokeswoman for the broker the Corcoran Group said Thursday. The Marshals Service put the 3,000-square-foot house on the market Sept. 1 to help repay victims of Madoffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s massive investment fraud. The four-bedroom house is set on a 1.2-acre lot amid the dunes in Montauk, a windswept beach community east of the Hamptons. Madoff, 71, was sentenced in June to 150 years in prison for orchestrating a Ponzi scheme that encompassed thousands of investors and billions of dollars.

Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary dies at 72

Mary Travers, part of the folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary, which used tranquil harmonies to convey the angst and turmoil of the Vietnam anti-war movement, racial discrimination and more, died Wednesday after a yearslong battle with leukemia. She was 72. Though their music sounded serene, Peter, Paul and Mary represented the frustration and upheaval of the 1960s, as a generation of liberal activists used their music not only to protest political policies, but also to spark social change. And even as the issues changed, and the fiery protests abated, the group remained immersed in musical activism. Their beatnik look â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a tall blonde flanked by a pair of goateed guitarists â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was a part of their initial appeal. The trio mingled their music with liberal politics, both onstage and off. Their version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I Had a Hammerâ&#x20AC;? became an anthem for racial equality. Other hits included â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lemon Tree,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Leaving on a Jet Planeâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Puff (The Magic Dragon).â&#x20AC;?

Prosecutors fight for key evidence against Barry Bonds After a trial court judge excluded urine samples from the upcoming trial of Barry Bonds, Federal prosecutors are urging an appellate court to let them present critical evidence they say proves Bonds knowingly used steroids. The San Francisco Giants slugger is accused of making false statements to a grand jury and obstructing justice. The judge says that evidence connected to Bonds’ personal trainer Greg Anderson could only be used if Anderson testifies. Anderson says he’d rather go to jail than testify. Bonds has pleaded not guilty to charges he lied to a grand jury in 2003 when he said he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs.

Deignan wins rain soaked 18th at Spanish Vuelta Irishman Philip Deignan won the 18th stage of the Spanish Vuelta on Thursday, and Alejandro Valverde of Spain retained the overall lead. Deignan and Roman Kreuziger of the Czech Republic broke away from a main pack of 16 riders, and remained together until the final sprint within the walled, medieval city of Avila, when Deignan edged ahead. The Cervelo team cyclist finished the 102-mile ride through the cold and rain from Talavera de la Reina to Avila in 4 hours, 19 minutes, 14 seconds. Kreuziger was 3 seconds back, and Denmark’s Jacob Fuglsang finished 16 seconds behind. Valverde, of the Caisse D’Epargne team, extended his lead over Robert Gesink of the Netherlands by a second to 32 seconds. Samuel Sanchez of Spain stayed third. Friday’s 19th stage is a 112-mile journey from Avila to La Granja just north of Madrid. The Vuelta ends Sunday in Madrid.

Bicycle speed records broke in Nevada event

New world bicycle speed records were set at an annual event in northeastern Nevada. A Canadian man, Sam Whittingham, and a French woman, Barbara Bautois, pedaled recumbent bikes to the records on Nevada Route 305 near Battle Mountain, about 220 miles northeast of Reno. The 32-year-old Bautois’ speed of 72.5 miles per hour Wednesday night broke the women’s record, set in 2005, by 6 mph.The 37-year-old Whittingham’s speed of 82.4 miles

Federer fined for language

Roger Federer and Serena Williams had a lot in common at this year’s U.S. Open: They were both defending champions, they both lost,

and they both received a fine for an outburst. For using profanity towards an umpire at the U.S. Open final, the world’s No. 1 tennis player Roger Federer has been fined $1,500. CBS microphones picked up the exchange during its live broadcast of the match. Tournament spokesman Chris Widmaier says Federer is being docked the same amount as two other players—Vera Zvonareva and Daniel Koellerer—for audible obscenity. Widmaier says a total of $31,500 in fines is being collected by the tournament, topped by Serena Williams’ $10,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct. She also was fined $500 for racket abuse.

Crave Real Estate teeinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; it up Salaries, Gilman security still covered in Minturn By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Denver and Eagle-Vail resident David Kleinkopf is the new face of Battle Mountain. The Crave Real Estate Ventures representative was in Minturn Wednesday night to reassure the town council that the company will continue to provide security for the mountain and the nearby town of Gilman. Crave also will continue to pay a portion of town workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; salaries, Kleinkopf said. Ginn Resorts, the original developer of the planned private ski and golf resort, paid a percent of town salaries related to work on its development plans. Ginn Resorts head Bobby Ginn has pulled back from the project to focus on his other real estate ventures around the country, some of which are currently in bankruptcy. Kleinkopf is the new day-to-day operations guy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a house in Eagle-Vail. My kids grew up going to the (Minturn) Country Club and the (Minturn) Saloon, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re basically residents,â&#x20AC;? Kleinkopf said. Kleinkopf said he splits his time between Minturn and Denver, since the project continues to face water litigation in Denver courts.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on water,â&#x20AC;? Kleinkopf said. EPA visit next week Even though the project has slowed down because of the legal issues and the economy, things are still moving forward, Kleinkopf said. Environmental Protection Agency representatives are slated to meet with project representatives and town officials next week, as a matter of fact, he said. Minturn residents voted in May 2008 to annex the project land into town. Crave Real Estate Ventures is partially owned by Lubert Adler in Philadelphia, the investment company financing the Battle Mountain project. Cliff Thompson, a former spokesman for Ginn, is now on the Crave payroll as a consultant, Kleinkopf said. So is Bill Weber, Ginnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former top executive in Minturn. Several other Ginn workers were let go last week, Kleinkopf said.

Maine Lobster Dinner

$35 for 3 Courses Lobster Bisque Lobster Salad on Bibb Lettuce Creamy Saffron Lobster Lasagna

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A man who says he hurled thousands of golf balls into Joshua Tree National Park for more than a year to honor deceased golfers will be explaining his tribute to a federal magistrate. Park rangers cited 57-year-old Douglas Jones for abandoning property, littering and feeding wildlife. Park spokesman Joe Zarki said Wednesday that Jones tossed some 3,000 golf balls from his vehicle. Jones also scattered a few tennis balls and park literature and left fruit and vegetables along park roads. Jones says rangers spent 370 hours cleaning up, at a cost of $9,000. Finally spotted in action last month, Jones allegedly told rangers he threw the golf balls to leave his mark and honor deceased golfers. The food was for stranded hikers.

and expansions for Eagle Valley High School, and several other projects. Funk and a cast of thousands shook at least one hand for every one of those 120 million dollars as they campaigned tirelessly, convincing voters of the vision to dramatically upgrade the valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I watched the construction progress with pride, but nothing can match the thrill of walking through the doors of the new Battle Mountain High School,â&#x20AC;? she told an enthusiastic crowd of 350 people on hand for Thursday afternoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ribbon cutting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you for voting â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;yesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on 3B.â&#x20AC;? Battle Mountain and Eagle Valley open for classes Monday. Athletes have been practicing and playing for a month. The only thing missing from their high school experience has been the school. Eagle Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official grand opening and ribbon cutting is later this month. The new Battle Mountain building is 207,560 square feet of polished glory, sitting on 41-acres site. Everything about it is state-of-the-art. The whole process began when the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction industry was rolling in overdrive, something that

[From page XX]

did not go unnoticed by Scott Green, school board president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today is a great day for the school district and for this community,â&#x20AC;? Green said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we started down this road, there was more than a little speculation about whether weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be able to do it on budget and on time, and both were accomplished,â&#x20AC;? Green said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not bricks and mortar that teaches students. We have a world class faculty and staff, but these new bricks and mortar sure are a nice touch. As Battle Mountain Principal Phillip Qualman addressed the crowd, Eagle County School Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in-house construction manager Ray Scott stepped forward to hand him a gold-plated bolt, symbolizing the completion of the building that Qualman will now run. Qualman grinned like a kid handed the keys to a candy store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like my grandfather was fond of saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The only way I could be more excited is to be bigger,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he told the laughing crowd. Now that the business of construction is completed, the business of education can resume. Classes start Monday.
