Hunting is a privilege Big game hunters wait years for Colorado DOW licenses By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer It took more than seven years of waiting, but hunter Eric Wardell finally achieved his goal. Just after the sun rose on a recent morning, Wardell and a friend were up near the Grand Traverse, the highest of those signature jagged rocks you can see from many spots in Vail, including Interstate 70. He spotted a mountain goat high on the rocky slope above him through his rifle scope and shot it. Next came the hard part — Wardell and his friend hiked up the rocky slope, cut up the meat, separated it into two backpacks and hiked out in the Bighorn drainage of the Eagle’s Nest Wilderness, which ends in a small parking lot in East Vail. Wardell made goat soup for his family that night as he finished packaging up the meat. He plans to make the furry hide into a rug. He went in to the Glenwood Springs Division of Wildlife office to have testing done on the animal and filled out a questionnaire. “I love hunting. It’s great — that feeling of bringing in your own meat



from start to finish,” Wardell said. “I love going in the Gore, because I can. That’s our backyard and some people will never see that.” Bears, mountain lion and bighorn sheep When folks in Colorado think of big game hunting, they usually think of elk and deer, mainly because of the huge populations of each in the state, said Randy Hampton, a Colorado Division of Wildlife spokesman in Grand Junction. But the wildlife management department also handles licenses for antelope, bears, bighorn sheep, deer, moose and mountain lions. Valley locals Berne and John Krueger had been applying for a tag to hunt bighorn sheep for the last six years. They finally got the appropriate license and bagged one this year; The Mountaineer will have their personal account of the accomplishment in a story next week. “People wait years for licenses, because the (goat) population is relatively small,” Hampton said. “Hunting is minorly controversial to some elements, but it’s broadly accepted.” Because the division is not funded [See BIG GAME HUNTING, page 22]

‘We legalized it, that’s why’ Voter approved Amendment 20 opened the door to pot shops By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Colorado voters essentially legalized pot when they amended the state Constitution to allow medical marijuana, said the regional DEA director. But as marijuana stores pop up, so do citizens pushing back. “What I love is that people are starting to get it,” said Jeff Sweetin, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s Rocky Mountain Division. The four-state region covers Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and Montana. Sweetin deals with marijuana all day every day, and says, “Medical marijuana is an oxymoron. There’s either medicine, or there’s marijuana, but both are not found in the same substance.” Sweetin also claims to have seen a lot of evidence that has helped him reach these conclusions. “Everything we see says there’s no medical purpose for marijuana, and we see everything,” Sweetin said. It’s money that matters Because people will buy it, marijuana stores are popping up like the pot plants they harvest and sell. To buy it, all you need is a note from a doctor, which is surprisingly easy to obtain. Doctors moving the marijuana trade write “recommendations,” not prescriptions. Those recommendations fall outside federal regulations, making quality control impossible, Sweetin said. A doctor set up shop in an Avon motel to sell recommendations for $275 each. His appointment book was filled. A Denver doctor wrote 200 recommendations in one day. At $250 for each one, that day’s take-home pay was $50,000. You also have to pay a $90 fee to the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. Then you can buy marijuana for $440 an ounce from one marijuana retailer we found, roughly the same price you’d pay from your friendly neighborhood dope dealer. You receive it the same way, as well: the familiar rolled up plastic sandwitch baggy. Organized crime syndicates with ties to Mexico and South America provide much of the marijuana sold in Colorado’s marijuana stores, Sweetin said. “It comes from the people who are trying to kill my agents,” he said. “Doctors tell me no self-respecting doctor would write a recommendation for medical marijuana.” Possessing marijuana is still a federal crime, but no physicians have experienced federal reprisals, said Mark Salley, communications director with the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. Shortly after his appointment by president Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder said the federal government would no longer seek out and prosecute federal cases involving medical marijuana.


How did this happen? “How did this happen?” Sweetin said, incredulous. “You voted for it! It’s a bizarre area of law. We now do ballots to determine which substances are acceptable and which are not.”

Medical Marijuana Registry Colorado’s Medical Marijuana Registry was last updated on June 30, 2009, before a judge’s ruling opened the door for the marijuana stores popping up all over the state. According to Registry statistics: • 10,795 new patient applications have been received to date since the registry began operating in June 2001. Twenty-nine (29) applications have been denied, 18 cards have been revoked, 199 patients have died, and 1,631 cards have expired, bringing the total number of patients who currently possess valid Registry ID cards to 8,918. • Seventy-two percent of approved applicants are male. • The average age of all patients is 41. Currently 5 patients are minors (under the age of 18). • Fifty-one percent of patients reside in the Denver-metro and Boulder area, where the bulk of the state’s population resides. • Patients on the Registry represent all the debilitating conditions covered under Amendment 20. Severe pain is a reported condition for 89 percent of all registrants; muscle spasms are the second-most reported condition at 26 percent. • Sixty-five percent of patients have designated a primary caregiver (someone who has significant responsibility for managing the patient’s care). • More than 800 different physicians have signed for patients in Colorado. Seventy-five percent were signed by 15 doctors. Doctor’s named are not listed on the registry, but one signed 2,797 medical marijuana recommendations. The second highest signed 1,003 recommendations. Source: Colorado Department of Health and Environment

In November 2000, Colorado voters approved Amendment 20, allowing medical marijuana to be sold in the state. Marijuana distributors were limited to five patients each. But last summer a judge threw out that five-patient limit, paving the way for the stores popping up all over the state. Just weeks ago, advocates tried to add four afflictions for which marijuana could be recommended, including Parkinson’s, bipolar disorder and anxiety. They were all denied by the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. Advocates sold it to voters as a way to ease the burden on law enforcement, Sweetin said. They sold the story that cops kick in the door and bust some poor guy who’s smoking pot in his basement, then asserted that cops should have more important things to do. “That’s a lie. If we never saw another marijuana plant, heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine would keep us plenty busy,” Sweetin said. “I’ve never seen a guy in jail because he smoked marijuana. “I’m constantly told our jails are full of people who were using drugs,” Sweetin said. “Our prisons are full of people who should be in prison.” As it becomes more legitimized and demand increases, it’s reasonable to assume that people are using it who wouldn’t have before. “Colorado should be very worried about this law,” Sweetin said. “We’ve created a state that’s wonderful place to be in the marijuana business.”

Older skiers cheat, too Many pass sharing cases involved 50- to 60-year-olds

Prime Rib

1 Happy Hour...

$ 00 /oz. Loaded Baked Potato Corn on the Cob

By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer One of the biggest surprises of the 2008-2009 ski season is the fact that more skiers and snowboarders in the 50- to 60-year-old range tried to share their passes with their friends and got busted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer just a teenager or a college kid,â&#x20AC;? said Municipal Judge Buck Allen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hits all age groups.â&#x20AC;? Close to 300 cases of deceptive use of a ski pass were reported for the 2008-2009 ski season on Vail Mountain, Allen said. Of those, 170 or so were prosecuted criminally, paying fines and facing jail time of up to 180 days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the great urban legends is that you buy the pass and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not using it, somebody else can,â&#x20AC;? Allen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a picture on it is a clue that maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just for you.â&#x20AC;?

Allen said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have exact statistics of how many of the cases were for older people, but that it was significant enough that he noticed the trend. The high price of single-day lift tickets may have contributed to the older folks being involved in the ski pass deception, he said. In addition, Vail Resorts bought new equipment last ski season that allowed lift operators to see the userâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picture and name on handheld computer screens. The radio frequency technology includes new computer chips embedded in ski passes. From a fraud perspective, that helped workers ask skiers and snowboarders more biographical information if they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure a userâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picture matched his or her face. The new technology appears to make things go faster in the lift mazes. The collected data also shows skier and snowboarder patterns during the day as they take various lifts around the hill.

Short-term rental plans strike Owners say property rights should not be legislated By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer A plan that may officially allow more short-term rentals in Avon has the tom-tom network going among area homeowners and Realtors. Many support the idea in the 20 or more Realtors who have sent comments to the town. But many of them also feel like their property rights should not be legislated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel it is an ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to lease units on a short/ long-term basis as they deem fit, unless the condominium declarations prohibit such use,â&#x20AC;? said Darrell Cooter, owner of Vail Mountain Real Estate Inc., in a written comment to the town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition, the timing of this enforcement of this ordinance is unbelievable due to our economic circumstances.â&#x20AC;? Vacationing skiers and snowboarders often rent condos instead of hotel rooms in town. Such rentals are allowed in certain downtown complexes like The Seasons and Chapel Square.

Short-terming is mostly illegal in Avon But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re illegal in many others, including Beaver Creek West, a 124-condominium complex that has its own business license and has paid probably millions of dollars in sales tax and lodging tax over the years, said Michael Bennett, general manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have no problem with having some regulatory process over short-term rentals,â&#x20AC;? Bennett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think what (town officials) are reacting to is people who have complained about short-term activity in their neighborhood or their complex.â&#x20AC;? The town has not had the resources to ferret out every illegal rental over the years, said Becky Lawlor, a town spokeswoman. Even with staff constraints, however, the community development department sent about 50 letters last year to homeowners who are not in compliance, she said.

Michele Garner at Reach Destinations said she can see both sides of the argument about trying to regulate short-term rental use in Avon or anywhere else in Eagle County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read from a couple of people saying, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sick and tired that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know who is in the hot tub next week, because every week it changes,â&#x20AC;?

In addition, Janes wants to document scenes around town. Recently, she has been working with some of the long-time locals in Minturn to paint the scenes they remember, most often with photographs that they bring her.

Talk with T.R. Reid

As both political parties are mudslinging and vying for your vote on health care reform, how does someone who’s personally researched both sides of the debate from America to Osaka feel about Obamacare? Bestselling author and Washington Post Correspondent T.R. Reid, whose book “The Healing of America” focuses on health care in other countries, will be at the Bookworm in Edwards Tuesday to share his thoughts on the nation’s health care. “We are dedicated to bringing all sorts of publications to the public, but this one we feel is particularly timely seeing as how everyone is thinking about health care and health care reform,” said Besse Lynch, events and marketing coordinator at The Bookworm. “This is something that will resonate within the community.” “The Healing of America” lays bare the moral question at the heart of our troubled system, dissecting the misleading rhetoric surrounding the health care debate, and finds models around the world that Americans can borrow to guarantee health care for everybody who needs it, according to the Bookworm’s website. The book follows Reid as he seeks care for an aching shoulder in U.S., France, Germany, Japan, England, and even visits a clinic in India to compare apples to apples their approach to health care. The book signing and talk by Reid is hosted by the Vail Symposium, for which Reid is an alumni speaker, said Carrie Marsh, executive director. “We’re very excited to bring him back this year since there is such a big debate going on about health care,” said Marsh. “Everyone in the world is becoming very excited about health care, who knew?” On “The Healing of America,” Publishers Weekly says Reid “explores health-care systems around the world in an effort to understand why the U.S. remains the only first world nation to refuse its citizens univer-

Tuesday, 6 p.m. The Bookworm, 295 Main St., Edwards Bestselling author and journalist T.R.

sal health care.” Reid will compare facts and flaws in our system at the event, as well as those overseas, said Marsh. “T.R. Reid is going to show us how health care works in our country as compared to Europe and beyond,” she said. “It’s important for us to talk about what we want our health care to look like regardless of what side were on. It’s an interesting way to for people in our community to learn about health care from the perspective of someone who’s researched it from both sides.” In his Washington Post article published Aug. 23, Reid uses his experience with health care in Europe to dispel myths circulating since health care reform became a hot button issue on the home front. “Given our remarkable medical assets -- the besteducated doctors and nurses, the most advanced hospitals, world-class research -- the United States could be, and should be, the best in the world,” Reid writes. “To get there, though, we have to be willing to learn some lessons about health-care administration from the other industrialized democracies.” This is a Vail Symposium event, but please call The Bookworm at 970-926-READ to reserve your space. The event starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are $20 and include wine and appetizers, with a portion of proceeds will be donated to The Vail Symposium.

LETTERS Great job done by hundreds of volunteers

Don’t you love walking along the edge of the river, listening to the flow and rapids, watching for minnows in a pool, seeing a trout jump out for a bug, and watching the mom and dad goose on the other side teaching their little guys how to swim, not to mention the tree just chewed down by a beaver. It is awesome. The Eagle River Watershed Council is the major waterways maintenance organization, and had their annual river clean up last Saturday. Hundreds of folk showed up to clean their area, both bankside and into the water. What a great project to clean the habitat of our creeks and rivers. The chief organizers were Joe Macy, (EVCF board member), Melissa Macdonald (ERWC executive director), and her assistant, Don Golden. Great job! Sponsors are vital, and we’d like to thank the following for their financial support: Vail Resorts 360; El Pomar Foundation; First Bank; St. Baldrick’s Foundation; 4 Eagle Ranch; Alpine Bank; Beaver Creek Mountain Dining; Beaver Creek Resort Company; CDOT; Cordillera Homeowners; East West Partners; KZYR; MRC Broadcasting; Resolution Graphics; Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate; Town of Eagle; Town of Vail; TV 8; Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa; Vail Daily; Vail Honeywagon; Alpine River Outfitters; Arrowhead Alpine Club; Community Banks of Colorado; Coors Tap the Rockies; Eagle Ranch; Eagle Valley Enterprise; Fly Fishing Outfitters; Loaded Joe’s; Moe’s BBQ; Timberline Tours; Town of Gypsum; Trout Unlimited; Vail Securities and Vail Rotary. What a wonderful group they are. Most of all, we really appreciate the organization of the team leaders, getting their teams together, and filling those orange bags!!! Following the wading, we had a great BBQ waiting at 4 Eagle Ranch, put on by Bob Moroney, Stew Hinton, and the members of the Arrowhead Alpine Club. Who could ask for anything more? What a great community event that sustains our beautiful environment! Sue Mott, Volunteer Coordinator

3rd annual Potatopalooza a success

Well, the 3rd Annual Potatopalooza is behind us and what a GREAT turnout! I would like to thank everyone for coming down to Eagle on Saturday. The music lineup downtown was phenomenal with entertainers like Jason Vigil, Rob Drabkin, and the Hillbilly Hellcats. The Samples concert in our town park was fantastic! They put on a great show for an incredibly enthusiastic crowd. I would like my sponsors which included The Town of Eagle, Century Tel, Alpine Bank, Eagle Valley Realty, Mountain Beverage, Monapolowa, NRC Broadcasting, the Vail Daily, KZYR/The Zephyr, Vail Mountaineer,


and One Eagle. I would also like to thank Resolution Graphics/Sue Hibbs, Megan Morrisey, Jill Anderson/ Anderson Marketing for helping me market this event. The Eagle Police and Fire Department, the Ambulance District and town maintenance gave me an overwhelming amount of support that I am very grateful for. We had great vendors and volunteers too. All did a great job and insured that everyone was having a good time! I am in awe of my friends who come out in force to help me! I owe an incredible amount of gratitude to Holli Snyder, Jerry Wetzel, Beth Chabot (aka Betty Crick), Stacy Jones, Jessica Fisher, Tara Picklo, Scott Schlosser, Yuri Kostik, Carole Bukovich, Pam Boyd, Gabrie Higbie, Mary Ann and Jon Stavney! Thank you… I will never forget what you have done for me and this event. I also thank my staff at everyday outfitters. I could not produce this event if I didn’t have such a great group of women working for me. Finally, I thank my husband Doug and my children, Christopher and Sharon, for their patience, love and energy. I am such a lucky person to have all these people and entities around me! You make all the hardwork seem effortless and your support genuine. Thank you a million times over for helping me put on another successful Potatopalooza! Erin Seabury

I support the Hidden Gems wilderness proposal and I hope you will also. We are very fortunate that previous generations had the foresight to set aside our existing wilderness areas. We also must have the wisdom to enlarge that legacy for our children and grandchildren. The Hidden Gems proposal has gone through years of field-checking and stakeholder outreach. Major boundary adjustments have been made to accommodate the interests of mountain bikers, grazing and outfitter permit holders among many other potential users. The areas remaining in the proposal are very special places that deserve to be protected forever from the threats of road building, motorized vehicles, gas drilling and other extractive industries. I feel it is extremely important to protect these areas, which are mainly at the middle elevations. The “hidden gems” are “hidden” because most of them are off the beaten track from the popular high-elevation areas. Biologically they’re “gems” because they preserve some of our richest wildlife habitat. Our existing wilderness areas are a big part of our high quality of life. This in turn helps our economy to remain as strong as it is. Plus, they protect much of our best hunting and fishing lands, and contribute in numerous other ways to our recreation-based economy. Our local population continues to grow, and the pressure on our backcountry continues to increase. It is necessary to set aside these last best unprotected places before they’re lost forever.

The Vail Mountaineer has landed an exclusive interview with the infamous pirate of the now-defunct Pirate Radio 103.5 FM. After operating illegally over the airwaves here in the Valley over the course of the last year, Pirate Radio 103.5 FM was recently shut down, seemingly having been foiled by the FCC. The Mountaineer received a few letters questioning the pirate’s whereabouts and thus began a quest to find the mysterious buccaneer and find out what happened to his radio station. The pirate has since contacted us and granted us our exclusive interview, where we asked such questions as “Where was the Pirate operating out of?” and “What are the pirate’s views on the FCC laws that shut him down?” Keep reading The Mountaineer to see when the transcript of the interview will appear. Pictured here is Tara Picklo of Yeti’s Grind holding a Pirate Radio sign we found in Edwards. Avery Cunliffe photo.

indicated he is associated with al-Qaida and played a key role in a planned terror attack, a senior U.S. intelligence official said Friday. Najibullah Zaziâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney says he has never met with al-Qaida operatives and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t involved in terrorism. Zazi completed a third day of questioning by FBI agents in Denver Friday but was not under arrest. More questioning is expected today. The intelligence official in Washington told The Associated Press that Zazi has indicated that he is directly linked with al-Qaida. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss intelligence matters, said Zazi played a crucial role in an intended terrorist attack but that it was not immediately clear what the targets were. The official went on to say that the plot was being directed from outside the United States.

ric that has brought him international condemnation. The Iranian president said Israel was created on â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lie and a mythical claimâ&#x20AC;? and expressed doubts whether the Holocaust, when the Nazis killed 6 million Jews during World War II, was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;real event.â&#x20AC;? He said that after World War II, Jews claimed that â&#x20AC;&#x153;several million Jews were burned in ovensâ&#x20AC;? and they used â&#x20AC;&#x153;twisted propaganda plotsâ&#x20AC;? to depict Jews as oppressed. Ahmadinejad pledged Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full support for Palestinians and said Quds Day was the â&#x20AC;&#x153;day of unityâ&#x20AC;? for Iranians, Muslims and the international community.

Less is now more in defense

Giving contraceptives to people in developing countries could help fight climate change by slowing population growth, experts said Friday. More than 200 million women worldwide want contraceptives, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have access to them, according to an editorial published in the British medical journal, Lancet. That results in 76 million unintended pregnancies every year. Experts believe that while normal population growth is unlikely to significantly increase global warming that overpopulation in developing countries could lead to increased demand for food and shelter, which could jeopardize the environment as it struggles with global warming.

Poles and Czechs voiced deep concern Friday at President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to scrap a Bush-era missile defense shield planned for their countries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Betrayal! The U.S. sold us to Russia and stabbed us in the back,â&#x20AC;? the Polish tabloid Fakt declared on its front page. Polish President Lech Kaczynski said he was concerned that Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new strategy leaves Poland in a dangerous â&#x20AC;&#x153;gray zoneâ&#x20AC;? between Western Europe and the old Soviet sphere. The Bush administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s missile defense plan would have been â&#x20AC;&#x153;a major step in preventing various disturbing trends in our region of the world,â&#x20AC;? Kaczynski said in a guest editorial in Fakt that also was carried on his presidential Web site. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said he still sees a chance for Poles and Czechs to participate in the redesigned missile defense system. But that did not appear to calm nerves in Warsaw or Prague. Kaczynski expressed hopes that the U.S. will now offer Poland other forms of â&#x20AC;&#x153;strategic partnership.â&#x20AC;?

Why would anyone want a defense?

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Friday praised Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to end missile defense for Poland and the Czech Republic and urged the U.S. to also cancel Cold War-era restrictions on trade with Russia. In Brussels, Rogozin, the Russian NATO envoy, said the shelving of the U.S. missile shield in Eastern Europe means Russia will now not deploy short-range Iskander missiles near Poland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have no radars and missiles in the Czech Republic and Poland, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to find some response,â&#x20AC;? he said. Russia has long sought a stronger voice in European missile defense plans and has said it would like to link systems. But it insists on a joint analysis of threats first. The Kremlin has always contended the potential threat from Iran was not as serious as the Bush administration said it was.

California’s unemployment rate hit 12.2 percent in August, up from 11.9 percent in July, the Los Angeles Times reports. California ranks fourth in the national unemployment rate, preceded by Michigan, Nevada and Rhode Island. The California Economic Development Department reports California lost only 12,300 jobs last month, compared with 38,900 jobs in July. The Golden State lost 741,500 jobs over the last year. The jobless rates in California, Nevada and Rhode Island were the highest on records dating to 1976. California and Nevada have been slammed by the housing bust, while Rhode Island has lost thousands of manufacturing and government jobs in the past year. Still, California’s net loss of 12,000 jobs was down from 35,000 the previous month. From November 2008 through June, the state lost at least 65,000 jobs each month, said Jerry Nickelsburg, a senior economist with the Anderson Forecast at the University of California, Los Angeles.

The Secret Service and the D.C. police brought in three dozen vehicles and shut down several streets and the entrance to a Metro station for the first lady’s errand, the Washington Post reports. Agents swept the area with bomb-sniffing dogs, installed magnetometers in the middle of the street, put up barricades to keep pedestrians out, and took positions with binoculars atop trucks, the Post reports.

Senate Democrats said Wednesday they will spend millions on road signs that highlight where stimulus money will go, the Washington Times reports. The road signs boasting construction funding from the $787 billion economic stimulus program, have popped up across the country. New Hampshire Republican Sen. Judd Gregg tried to ban funding for the signs. “Considering the questionable effectiveness of the stimulus bill, it is completely unreasonable that signs are being constructed at a price tag of hundreds to thousands of dollars apiece for lawmakers to pat themselves on the back about this legislation,” he said in a statement.

Big brother is watching ... your garage sale

New limits on the sale of lead ridden children’s products set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, could mean hefty fines to Americans who hold garage sales nationwide, Fox News reports. Guidelines conceived by the CPSC dubbed the “Resale Round-up,” make it illegal to sell any items that don’t meet those limits or have been recalled for any other reason. Stores, flea markets, charities and individuals selling used goods should consult the CPSC’s 24-page “Handbook for Resale Stores and Product Resellers” for items blacklisted from resale. Violators face fines up to $100,000 per infraction and up to $15 million for a related series of infractions. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Playing four days after his five-set loss to Juan Martin del Potro in the U.S. Open final, Federer shook off two break points in the opening game and was never in trouble against the 64th-ranked Bolelli. Federer, who struggled with his serve in the U.S. Open final, had 10 aces to go with 35 winners. “With the jet lag and surfaces change and playing here in Italy away, I knew it was always going to be a tough match,” said Federer, who improved his Davis Cup record to 36-11. Stanislas Wawrinka defeated Andreas Seppi 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 in the first match on the red clay courts at the Valletta Cambiaso club. “We knew these were key matches, and that we were able to get both gives us a great opportunity on the weekend,” Federer said. Federer and Wawrinka, the Olympic champions, will face Fabio Fognini and Potito Starace in doubles on Saturday, with reverse singles scheduled for Sunday. The winner of the best-of-five series will return to the World Group next year.

64-year-old golfer makes 2 hole-in-ones in one round

In 1999, Golf Digest reported that the odds of any weekend hack making a hole-in-one to be around 1 in 12,750. In that same article, the magazine said that the odds of making two hole-in-ones in the same round were 1 in 9,222,500. Ruth Day, a 64-year-old retiree from northern England, accomplished the feat just last week. Day made two holes-in-one in the same round at Whitley Bay Golf Club, where she is a member. She made her first ace on the 149-yard third hole on Sept. 9. She added the second on the 161-yard 13th. The only players on the PGA Tour to record two hole-in-ones in

one round are Yusaku Miyazato in 2006 and Bill Whedon in 1955.

Minnesota blocks rowdy fans with breath test

The University of Minnesota has taken a radical step stopping problem drunks from entering their stadium. Students who get removed from a game for drunken rowdiness won’t be allowed back next time unless they pass an alcohol breath test at the gate. The new policy applies to the 10,000 student season-ticket holders. It is aimed primarily at fans who get blitzed at tailgate parties before entering the Golden Gophers’

brand-new TCF Bank Stadium. The sale and possession of alcohol are banned at the 50,000-seat stadium, unlike the team’s former home, the Metrodome, which is off campus and not owned by the school. Student season-ticket holders who get ejected from one game and want to attend another must go through a special gate where a breath test is administered. If they enter through a regular gate, they will get caught afterward when officials compare the database of used tickets to that of flagged students. Students under the drinking age of 21 must test completely clean to enter the stadium. Students 21 or older have to be below 0.08 percent, the legal limit for driving in Minnesota. This is one of the most extreme attempts yet by colleges to curb misbehavior in the stands.

Juan Jose Cobo captures 19th stage of Spanish Vuelta The mountainous and rainy 19th stage of the Spanish Vuelta was won by Juan Jose Cobo of Spain on Friday. Alejandro Valverde retained the overall leaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jersey with two stages left. Cobo covered the 112-mile leg from Avila to La Granja in 4 hours, 37 minutes, 35 seconds. Valverde was second, two seconds behind, and Australian rider Cadel Evans was third in the same time. Cobo raced away from a pack of seven riders with just over a mile to go and stayed ahead until the finish.

Two cyclists suspended for doping

The International Cycling Union said Friday that Hector Guerra of Spain and Nuno Ribeiro of Portugal tested positive for the latest version of the endurance-boosting hormone EPO. The two riders were scheduled

The grueling stage included three top-category climbs. Valverde leads Samuel Sanchez of Spain by 1:26 in the overall standings. Ivan Basso of Italy is third, 1:45 behind. Robert Gesink of Netherlands, who had been second overall behind Valverde, dropped to sixth place after finishing Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage 4:44 behind Cobo. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20th stage is a 17-mile individual time trial in and around Toledo, just south of Madrid. The race finishes Sunday in the Spanish capital.

The UCI has told their national federations to remove the riders from the worlds Sept. 23-27 in Mendrisio, Switzerland. Their teammate on the Liberty Seguros squad, Isidro Nozal of

Spain, also failed a doping test for CERA. Nozal was runner-up in the 2003 Spanish Vuelta. All three were caught in out-ofcompetition tests taken in Portugal last month, days before the start of the 10-stage national race. They are banned until their federations hold disciplinary hearings.

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An Ohio woman who says she was unfaithful has chosen a very public way of asking her boyfriend not to break up their engagement. Nineteen-year-old Jess Duttry stood outside a supermarket parking lot this week with a handwritten sign that said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cheatedâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honk if I deserve a second chance.â&#x20AC;? On the back, Duttry had scrawled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I honestly love him.â&#x20AC;? She says she choose to stage her vigil Wednesday evening near Sandusky in northern Ohio after her fiance took back his ring earlier that day when she confessed sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d cheated on him this summer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear if he saw the message, but Duttry says dozens of people honked, and some got out of their cars to hug her and wish her well.

by taxpayer dollars, most of its revenue comes from hunting licenses, Hampton said. Goat licenses are $250 for state residents and $1,825 for non-residents.

‘Hunting is a privilege’ Mountain goats were reintroduced to Colorado in 1947 based on historical data that they lived in the state, Hampton said. In 2008, DOW officials handed out 10 mountain goat licenses in the Middle Park region mostly north of Vail and six were killed of the estimated 140 animals that live here. In total across the state, 228 licenses were issued and 167 goats were harvested last year. Wardell said he considers it a privilege to hunt, adding that he doesn’t think twice about turning in other hunters if they’re not following the rules. “Taking an animal’s life demands respect,” Wardell said. “I’m sorry to say that you hear the bad stories of guys who aren’t good hunters, that so-and-so shot this illegally, or shot more than one, and it’s sad.” The goat hunting season runs Sept. 8 through Oct. 8. It’s also muzzle-loading season right now for elk and deer.

Mountain goats were re-introduced to Colorado in 1947 based on historical data that indicated that they lived here previously. It usually takes years to get a permit to hunt them; the season this year opened Sept. 8 and runs through Oct. 8. Pictured here id Ted Archibeque with a mountain goat he shot in 2008.
