Toxic metal too much? EPA says drinking water from Eagle River still safe; consultants disagree By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Minturn’s Eagle Mine still leaches too much toxic metal into the Eagle River, an environmental consultant who represents Vail Resorts and the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District said Tuesday. Levels of zinc, copper and cadmium can reach abnormally high levels during spring run-off season, said Bob Weaver, who works at AMEC in Boulder. In general, cadmium is more toxic to humans while zinc and copper are more toxic to fish, Weaver said. Weaver and others asked to examine mine monitoring data after it was presented in a meeting at the Avon Library on Tuesday by

NewFields Inc., a Denver-based clean-up consulting company. “They need more clean-up, and that’s our position,” Weaver said. “We’re encouraged that they’re heading in the right direction.” Residents should be assured that the drinking water that comes from the Eagle River is completely safe, according to Michael Holmes, an Environmental Protection Agency representative in Denver. There may be a higher concentration of metals in the river in the spring, but they do not exceed federal standards, he said.

Roadhouse to rule the ranch tomorrow



By Dawn Witlin Special to the Mountaineer

A surprise drop in consumer confidence tripped up investors Tuesday, a day after a round of corporate takeovers set off a steep market rally. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 47.16, or 0.5 percent, to 9,742.20. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 2.38, or 0.2 percent, to 1,060.60. The Nasdaq composite index fell 6.70, or 0.3 percent, to 2,124.04.

The business world has changed and a group of local business leaders are getting together tomorrow to brainstorm how to capitalize on it. The Eagle Valley Chamber of Commerce is hosting a business forum Thursday morning. Topping the conversation will be how the economic downturn has affected their industries and businesses, and how they are planning and adjusting. “We can live together or die alone,” said Randy Olin, saying he was lifting the line from the TV series “Lost.” “Whether it’s businesses, individuals or organizations, we need to help each other through this, not undercut each other,” Olin said. Olin will open the morning with a quick discussion about planning, and how to put those plans into practice. Olin is with the Gallegos Corp., as vice president of finance and helping lead the company’s strategic planning group A four-person panel will spend about 15 minutes each talking about their areas of economic expertise, followed by a question and answer session. The four panel members represent banking, real estate, construction and county government: Chad Brasington will discuss real estate. He’s the immediate past president of the Vail Board of Realtors, and a Realtor with Prudential. Phil Frank will discuss banking and finance. Frank is senior vice president Community Banks of Colorado.

Endangered lynx habitat adds to Battle Mountain complications Developers need permit from the US Fish and Wildlife By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer A proposed 5,000-acre-or-so Battle Mountain ski area development is on endangered lynx habitat, which would require a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, a spokesman said Tuesday. To negotiate, Ginn Resorts representatives this spring offered to donate a separate site about 50 miles away as replacement habitat, said Kurt Broderdorp, a fish and wildlife biologist at the Fish and Wildlife Service office in Grand Junction. The bob-tailed cat was reintroduced to the San Juan Mountains in 1999 after disappearing from Colorado around 1973. “They are required under this part of the (endangered species) act to avoid, minimize and mitigate the effect of the taking of lynx,” Broderdorp said. “The issue is the considerable amount of habitat lost.” Neither a Ginn Resorts representative nor a Crave Real Estate representative returned a call for comment on Tuesday. Crave has taken over the day-to-day operation of the project, which could include 1,700 homes, a ski area and a golf course on private land. Lynx habitat The lynx has been a hot-button issue in Vail for more than 10 years, drawing impassioned arguments from both supporters and detractors. A lynx paw print was found in the snow on a high ridge near Earl’s Bowl by the U.S. Forest Service last winter, according to Don Dressler, a Forest Service snow ranger.

— is within a mile of the private Battle Mountain property, Broderdorp said. Broderdorp said he hopes to meet with Crave Real Estate representatives soon to discuss how they should go about getting the required approvals from his agency. Even though the Battle Mountain project appeared to be faltering for the last nine months or so, federal officials also filed a notice to do an environmental impact statement for it, Broderdorp said. Such research statements usually are required for ski areas proposed for public land. “Are they going to move forward on things that have already been approved?” Broderdorp asked rhetorically. “Obviously, some names have to be changed, and potentially some issues have to be ironed out.” Some tree clearing has been done on top of the Battle Mountain site. Water issues also have been a sticking point, as has a lawsuit from a nearby resident.

A fish measuring study done earlier this year found that the trout are slightly smaller than normal in the Eagle River near Edwards. A feasibility study being done by various government agencies could suggest more clean-up. It’s expected to be done in a couple of months, said Wendy Naugle, a groundwater

Dellos’ last day is today Popular local, VVMC greeter leaves Valley for Ohio By Michael Gallagher Special to the Mountaineer A face familiar to staff, patients, and other visitors at Vail Valley Medical Center will be very missed. Patient Relations Specialist Ryan Dellos heads back to his home state of Ohio on Wednesday. His exceptional service and knowhow has had a positive effect on many who pass through the hospital doors. It’s a job that entails more than just greeting people at the door with a smiling face. It’s ensuring the overall happiness of the patient and their family and friends, helping people find their destinations, coordinating information with the respective departments, and working with staff to meet patient needs. It might be getting someone lunch, providing information on local accommodations and activities, and some problem solving. “It requires a lot of communication with staff at the hospital. It’s like being an assistant in each department for the most part,” Dellos chuckled. Ryan will also miss the hospital and the area. “I’m going to miss how tight the community is. Everyone is exceptional in how they interact with everyone, and the employees at the hospital are amazing. It’s a unified team in their efforts to ensure that the patients are taken care of as well as they can be,” said Dellos. “Whether it’s the guy in the parking lot all the way up to Doctor Steadman, it’s a superior staff.” Ryan knows firsthand about community caring, with his two years’ involvement in the American Cancer Society’s local Relay For Life. He is also a childhood cancer survivor, and helped VVMC coordinate with the Shaw Cancer Center for the event. He said his participation has made a big impact on his life through his interaction with other cancer survivors, and with fundraising and community awareness. Dellos also had high praise for Richard Norris, Se-

nior Guest Services Specialist, who in addition to being the “patron saint” of VVMC, brought Ryan into a position that requires not only protocols, but also true human understanding. “Richard is an extraordinary gentleman, whether as a supervisor, a fellow employee, he’s made quite the difference in my life, and he has with many other people as well, and he’s continued to make a difference at the hospital as well. I will really miss him.” Ryan is returning to Mansfield, Ohio, and will work as a patient advocate at OSU Medical Center.

Aspen still most expensive

Vail Mountaineer


Dentistry that fits your lifestyle

Cost of living 393 percent higher than Denver Aspen is still the No. 1 most expensive spot in our spiral arm of the universe. The Peoples Republic of Pitkin topped this year’s cost of living study, just released by the Northwest Colorado Council of Governments. If you want to live like the rest of America, in an Ozzie and Harriet/Leave It to Beaver single family home, the cost of living is 393.3 percent more in Aspen than Denver. Vail shouldn’t get too cocky. It’s second at 188.5 percent more expensive than Denver. At the other end of our Happy Valley, Eagle is 134.5 percent higher than Denver, and Gypsum is 121.6 percent higher. Head 120 miles west and you find Grand Junction is 97 percent of Denver’s cost of living. The High Cost of Cool Housing, of course, drives most of that higher living cost. “I always thought that if I lived in a $1 million house, it would have more than one bathroom,” said part-time Aspen resident Curtis Robinson. Let’s say a house in Denver costs $100,000. Teleport that house to Aspen and you’ll pay $975,000. Teleport that same house into Vail and you’ll pay $359,000, and you’d have to teleport it because that’s the only way you’ll find a house like that for that price in Vail. Even Walden, the Moose Viewing Capital of Colorado, is slightly ahead of Denver when it comes to housing costs. That $100,000 three-bedroom, two and a half bath Denver house will cost $107,000 in Walden. Queen City Central The 2009 cost of living study uses Denver as a baseline. But how does the Queen City of the Plains compare to the rest of America, as well as Standard City, USA? We thought you’d never ask. Denver is pretty much spot on average with Standard City at 103.4 percent. The extra 3.4 percent can probably be accounted for by parking, beer and hot dog costs at Mile High Stadium (OK, Uncle Randy made that up,

NWCCOG didn’t say that, but if you’ve ever bought beer at a Broncos game you know it’s probably true). At the top of American price list is New York City, the city that never sleeps. All that insomnia runs up the cost of living to 212.8 percent compared to Standard City. On the Left Coast is Los Angeles at 144.6 percent of Standard City, which makes sense because El Lay has better weather but worse traffic than Standard City, or any other city. At the other end is Houston, Texas, at 87.7 percent of Standard City, which is good, but you’d have to root for the Houston Astros and be a huge fan of humidity, so it would average out. How they did it The Northwest Colorado Council of Governments did the study, as it does about every three years. The Colorado Department of Local Affairs paid for it with money it gets from mineral impact fees paid by mining and natural gas drilling companies. The study compares the cost of stuff you buy in your day-to-day life, ranging from tires to toothpaste, shelter to shelving material. It assumes that we all buy a bunch of the same stuff, and it compares what that stuff costs. The difference this year is that NWCCOG included every town in its seven county area, 21 towns in all, ranging from Aspen to Avon and Walden to Winter Park. In years past, it only included towns that wanted in. This year, you’re in whether you want to be or not. It also made comparisons with Denver, instead of the normal market basket you’d buy if you lived in “Standard City, USA.” To give the study a more local perspective, this year’s included Grand Junction. “The price for goods and services … may differ, even if the good or service is identical, based on market factors,” the study says. The goal is to determine how much more, or less, stuff costs in communities around the area. The study looks at three different people: A single renter who makes about $20,000 a year, a two-person family with an annual income of $45,000, and a family of four that owns a single family home and earns about $72,000 a year.

Doctor: Crisis looming in to reason Medicaid care Trying with flu season

If you have the flu, you’re not being brave by showing up to work and soldiering through your duties. You’re a coughing, wheezing, sneezing germ manufacturing facility and we’d all be better off if you stayed home until you’re over it. “It’s flu season, and you want people to stay home to take care of themselves, instead of going to work or school and infecting others,” said Dr. Drew Werner with the Eagle County Board of Health. But before you’re a walking wheeze, there are couple things you should do: 1. Get a flu shot, says the Eagle County Board of Health. 2. Wash your hands and keep your fingers out of your eyes, ears and other orifices belonging to you or anyone else. And just because you get the sniffles does not mean you need to rush to the emergency room and grab your doctor by the stethoscope and scream. “It’s important for people to partner with their doctors,” Werner said. “Not everyone who gets sick needs to see a doctor, and not everyone sees a doctor needs to be treated.” If you’re suffering from a cough, runny nose and a fever, stay home and get better. As long as that fever is in the 99-degree range, you should be fine. If your fever hits 102 or 103, go see the doctor, Werner said. Seasonal flu shots are available now. Swine flu will come through in smaller doses. “For now, the H1N1 vaccinations are for targeted groups,” Werner said. “More vaccine will likely become available later in the flu season.” Area emergency agencies are preparing for a possible flu epidemic. A two-day emergency training exercise simulated an H1N1 outbreak. More than 25 agencies from Garfield County, Eagle County, Pitkin County, Summit County, and Routt County prepared for a possible local H1N1 outbreak. “By working together in simulated situations, the Incident Management Team is better prepared to manage a real event and keep our communities safe,” said Carbondale Fire Chief Ron Leach.

In a community where fewer doctors take low income patients, the new Eagle County Board of Health has its work cut out for it. Right now, the only primary care physicians who accept the wide spectrum of Medicaid are the Eagle Care Clinic and the Eagle Valley Medical Center. Most primary care physicians treat anyone, but not everyone can pay. Medicaid is supposed to make health care available to low-income and at-risk individuals. But the reimbursement rates are so low that many medical practices won’t take Medicaid patients. The physicians’ fees are generally covered, but everything else that goes with the business can get shortchanged. Medicare pays a percentage of the expense of treating a patient. It wouldn’t affect the physicians’ fee, but it would affect the other services. No one is denied care, Werner said, but Medicaid patients tend to seek care too late and end up in an emergency room at the Vail Valley Medical Center or Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs, Werner said. Because they’re not-for-profit hospitals, they take all comers, but it’s an expensive way to treat patients. “The hospitals have to pull money from some other department to pay for it,” Warner said. “Many of those patients work jobs that don’t offer sick days, so if they don’t work they don’t get paid. Those people cannot stay home to take care of themselves or their children.” Medicaid is funded by the states with some federal subsidies. Medicare is funded entirely by the federal government. Medicaid provides treatment for those who cannot afford treatment any other way. Medicare, after Medicaid, is the lowest payer, said Werner. “There’s a looming crisis because the number of primary care physicians is not increasing, while the number of Medicaid patients is,” he said. “Many physicians here are specialty physicians who do not provide primary care, and do not live here full time.” The number of Medicare providers is also dropping, leaving senior patients searching for doctors. “We’re actually taking in patients from as far away as Fruita who have been looking for a Medicare physicians,” Werner said. “It’s impossible to determine when that might change.” The Eagle County Board of Health was recently formed to merge a few of the county’s public health responsibilities.

Finer and Designer Resale

Eagle-Vail • 845-7646 • M-F 10-6, Sat 10-4

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Phantom and Pharmacology: If you’re going to roll through a stop light, don’t do it with open containers of beer and baggies of cocaine and pot in your car. Officers pulled over the SUV and were pretty much able to discern who had been ingesting which controlled substance by the way they told their tale. For example, the guy with the blow rolling through his head was a candidate for a septum transplant and talked faster than the speed of sound. Mostly he addressed the dashboard. The guy who did the dope conveyed the story at a snail’s pace, punctuating each sentence with, “Whoa dude, ya know?” He tried to eat the dashboard after sprinkling Doritos all over it. The guy who’s been imbibing the brewer’s art practically sang the story and almost proposed marriage to the officers, who were in no mood to become romantically involved. The Cocaine Kid handed over a fake Colorado id he’d bought in Wyoming for $585, telling the officers that he knew the id was fake, but that’s a pretty darned “good picture of me, don’t you think?” The officer did not, and kept the fake id. Doper Dude handed over a Mexican id with the name Juan Romero on it, but no date of birth. Their curiosity aroused, the officers asked what, if anything Deputy Hall was doing at that moment and if he and Phantom The Drug Sniffing Crime Dog were available. Truth be told, the officers were more interested in Phantom than Deputy Hall, even though Deputy Hall is a delightful guy who loves his mama very much. But Phantom doesn’t go anywhere without his trusty sidekick. Phantom is loyal like that, and besides, it’s hard for Phantom to drive the patrol truck and operate the police radio at the same time because, while Phantom has lots of talents and gifts, opposable thumbs are not among them. Anyway, Deputy Hall and Phantom arrived on the scene and Phantom immediately got down to work. Phantom really, Really, REALLY loves his work and is great at it. He found cocaine stuffed into a cigarette carton, he found a few baggies of marijuana, and he found about $1,400 in cash. That’s pretty much how Doper Dude, the Cocaine Kid and Brewer Boy all found their way to the Eagle County Crossbar Hotel, where they were registered as guests. KKK and Away: The Constitution Kid was stopped because his truck’s license plates had expired. As deputies were having his truck towed away, he stated that towing his vehicle is “against the Constitutional rights of the Ku Klux Klan 1700.” And in the immortal words of Alice in Wonderland, from there it just got “curiouser and curiouser.” The deputy asked The Constitution Kid to round up all the standard government-issued documents, like his drivers license. The Kid owns a driver’s license, he said, but doesn’t

believe in using it because it’s a “contract with the state.” And it just got more entertaining from there. The deputy pointed out that you need a valid driver’s license to operate a motor vehicle in Colorado. “No you don’t,” replied The Constitution Kid, who’d been operating his motor vehicle without a license for years, mostly because it was revoked after he didn’t pay child support for a period long enough that it attracted a judge’s attention. About that time, The Constitution Kid opined that judges take money from fines and invest it in the New York Stock Exchange, “then take a cut for their own personal use.” The Constitution Kid, by then, had drawn an audience of three other deputies and like any performer he played to his audience. “Drivers license and vehicle registration are a fraud,” The Kid said, adding that the “law” states he doesn’t need a license and registration. The deputies were flummoxed as to what law that might be. Eventually, enough was enough and while the deputies were enthralled with The Constitution Kid’s interpretation of the law, his act was wearing a little thin. The deputies let him go, but had his truck arrested. Fishing fury: Fishing matters, but it shouldn’t matter this much. A couple buddies had finished a day on the area’s rivers and lakes, and were enjoying a couple adult beverages. They started talking about the best way to catch your limit when a spirited debate sprang up about the virtues of fishing versus trolling, and not the kind of trolling you’d do with a $100 bill at the Glendale Metropolitan Ballet, performed nightly in The Cherry Creek Center for the Performing Arts (Shotgun Willies). Some men take their fishing seriously, and fisticuffs soon ensued. A shiner resulted. It’s apparently against the law for someone to smack someone else, even though fishing is serious business. The Punchee was apparently disposing of a beer bottle in the Official Guy Way – winging it at a trash can from across the room. He missed and it flew by The Puncher’s head. It doesn’t say whether they also disagreed about the virtues of recycling versus the convenience of simple disposal, and whether or not their conversation veered into the economics of recycling in the face of plummeting global commodity prices for recycled goods. In other words, Americans send all kinds of recyclables to China, where they turn the stuff into Uncle Randy Action Figures, and send it back to the U.S., where American consumers buy it at rates not nearly as brisk as in the recent past. Be that as it may, Punchee ended up with an ice bag on his eye, assuredly made of recycled plastic. Puncher ended up with a summons for third degree assault, which is a travesty because if two American Guys cannot argue about fishing, pretty soon we’ll all be required to be happy about funneling money into the federal government to pay for the health care Punchee should have received, because that was one dandy shiner.

interior secretary, Democrats in Colorado expected a smooth transition, according to The New York Times. The state’s Democratic governor appointed a fellow Democrat, Michael Bennet, to finish Mr. Salazar’s term, and Mr. Bennet began raising millions of dollars to stave off a Republican challenge in next year’s election. Now Democrats in the state are deeply divided, and Republicans see an opportunity to break a recent Democratic hold on statewide offices, writes The Times’ Dan Frosch. The reason for the change? Andrew Romanoff, a popular former state lawmaker, has begun a Democratic primary challenge to Mr. Bennet. The primary is nearly a year away, but the candidacy of Mr. Romanoff, a former two-term speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives, is forcing Democrats to choose sides, according to Frosch. The two men have no glaring policy differences, but the contested primary, some Democrats fear, could weaken the party in the general election.

Revenge of the killer floor mats

Toyota Motor Corp. said Tuesday it will recall 3.8 million vehicles in the United States, the company’s largest-ever U.S. recall, to address problems with a removable floor mat that could cause accelerators to get stuck and lead to crashes. Toyota said it was still working with officials with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to find a remedy to fix the problem and said owners could be notified about the recall as early as next week. Toyota spokesman Irv Miller said until the company finds a fix, owners should take out the removable floor mat on the driver’s side and not replace it. “A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop a vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death,” Miller said. NHTSA said it had received reports of 102 incidents in which the accelerator may have become stuck on the Toyota vehicles involved. It was unclear how many led to crashes but the inquiry was prompted by a high-speed crash in August in California of a Lexus barreling out of control. The recall will affect 2007-2010 model year Toyota Camry, 2005-2010 Toyota Avalon, 2004-2009 Toyota Prius, 2005-2010 Tacoma, 2007-2010 Toyota Tundra, 2007-2010 Lexus ES350 and 2006-2010 Lexus IS250 and IS350.

You can’t even trust Mom anymore

Parents might say “honesty is the best policy,” but

when it comes to interacting with their own kids, mom and dad stretch the truth with the best of them, finds a new study, according to From claiming the existence of magical creatures to odd consequences of kids’ actions, parents often come up with creative tales to shape a child’s behaviors and emotions, writes the Web site’s Jeanna Bryner. “We are surprised by how often parenting by lying takes place,” study researcher Kang Lee of the University of Toronto, Canada, was quoted saying. “Our findings showed that even the parents who most strongly promoted the importance of honesty with their children engaged in parenting by lying.” Lee and his colleagues are not sure the implications of parental lying, but suggest such tall tales could give kids mixed messages at a time when they are trying to figure out how to navigate the social world, according to Bryner’s report.

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero sentenced the 58-year-old Hsu, who raised money for Hillary Rodham Clinton and others, to 20 years in prison for his guilty plea to fraud charges and another four years and four months in prison for his conviction at trial for breaking campaign finance laws. In a lengthy criticism of Hsu’s fraud, the judge said the former fundraiser used political contributions to win respect and impress investors as he committed campaign finance fraud. The judge said Hsu stole more than $50 million from hundreds of investors in a 10-year Ponzi scheme by winning their confidence with his pristine reputation and friendly nature, a two-faced quality the judge noted was common among certain white collar criminals.

Cold and flu and sore throat season -- a long, long time ago

Senate Democrats are pushing for a 20 percent cut in greenhouse gases by 2020 — deeper than what the House has passed and what President Barack Obama wants — according to a long-awaited bill that will test how serious the U.S. is about slowing global warming. The Democratic bill is to be released Wednesday by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee with a vote by the panel likely in late October. House Democrats could win passage of only a 17 percent emission cut by 2020 and Obama originally had sought only a 14 percent cut. However, aides who worked on the Senate version said it includes measures that will make the Senate’s target easier to achieve and cheaper for consumers. The bill includes an economy-wide cap and trade system that would require power plants, industrial facilities and refineries to cut carbon dioxide and other climate-changing pollution. While there would be an overall emission cap, polluters would be able to purchase emission allowances to limit reductions.

The famous dinosaur known as Sue — the largest, most complete and best preserved T. rex specimen ever found — might have been killed by a disease that afflicts birds even today, scientists now suggest, according to The remains of Sue, a star attraction of the Field Museum in Chicago, possess holes in her jaw that some believed were battle scars, the result of bloody combat with another dinosaur, possibly another T. rex, writes LiveScience contributor Charles Q. Choi. Now researchers suggest these scars did not result from a clash of titans, but rather from a lowly parasite. The infection in Sue’s throat and mouth may have been so severe that the 42-foot-long, 7-ton dinosaur starved to death, according to the report. The ailment the scientists propose felled Sue and other T. rexes is trichomonosis, also known as trichomoniasis. In birds of prey such as falcons and hawks, the germ causes a pattern of serious lesions in the lower beak that closely matches the holes in the jaws of Sue and occurs in the same anatomical location.

Hillary fundraiser sentenced to 24 years

Former Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu was sentenced Tuesday to more than 24 years in prison by a judge who accused him of funding his fraud by manipulating the political process in a way that “strikes at the very core of our democracy.”

Large girl’s best friend found in South Africa

Petra Diamonds Ltd. says a diamond the size of a chicken egg has been found at South Africa’s Cullinan mine. The diamond may be among the world’s top 20 high-quality gems. It was discovered Thursday at the mine northeast of Pretoria, South Africa. Johan Dippenaar, the company’s chief executive said in a statement Tuesday that the 507.55-carat gem was of “exceptional color and clarity.” The diamond is undergoing colour grading, but is believed to be a rare Type II diamond, with very low traces of nitrogen -- considered an impurity -- making them among the

Health insurance option still optional

In a long-anticipated showdown, liberal Democrats twice failed on Tuesday to inject a government-run insurance option into sweeping health care legislation taking shape in the Senate, despite bipartisan agreement that private insurers must change their ways. The two votes marked a victory for Montana Democrat Max Baucus, the Senate Finance Committee chairman, who is hoping to push his middle-of-the-road measure through the panel by week’s end. It also kept alive the possibility that at least one Republican may yet swing behind the overhaul, a key goal of both Baucus and the White House. The developments occurred as Democrats in the House sought savings to reduce their companion legislation to roughly $900 billion over a decade, the price tag President Barack Obama has suggested.

Appeals court would Rather not hear suit

A New York state appeals court on Tuesday dismissed former TV newsman Dan Rather’s lawsuit against CBS Corp in which Rather claimed he was made a scapegoat in a scandal over a 2004 report on then-President George W. Bush’s military record, according to the Reuters news agency. The ruling on Tuesday by a panel of judges of the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division said Rather’s $70 million complaint should be dismissed in its entirety and that a lower court erred in denying CBS’s motion to throw out the lawsuit, writes Reuters’ Edith Honan. Rather reportedly says CBS breached his contract by not giving him enough on-air assignments after he was removed as anchor of the “CBS Evening News” in March 2005. The appeals court ruled he failed to sufficiently support his claim that he lost business opportunities due to CBS’s failure to release him to seek other employment.

Marine cleared and honorably discharged

A military judge has dismissed a murder charge against a Marine accused of killing an unarmed detainee in Iraq. The charge against Sgt. Jermaine Nelson was dismissed Tuesday at Camp Pendleton after he agreed to plead guilty to dereliction of duty. His attorney Joseph Low says the plea agreement calls for no prison time and an honorable discharge. The 28-year-old Nelson could have faced up to life in prison if convicted of murder. Nelson was among three Marines accused of killing detainees in 2004 during house-to-house fighting to recapture Fallujah.

Terrorist to redefine terrorism

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chávez and Libya’s

[From page 1]

Vail Mountaineer


Muammar Gaddafi have joined forces to urge the world to redefine “terrorism”, according to The Financial Times. After a summit last weekend for African and South American leaders on the Venezuelan island of Margarita, the two leaders signed a document rejecting attempts to link terrorism to ”the legitimate struggle of the people for liberty and self-determination”, writes The Times’ Benedict Mander. While emphasizing the importance of attacking terrorism “in all its forms, including state terrorism”, the controversial duo reportedly called for an international conference to establish a new definition for the concept of terrorism. The two leaders – who have both come under attack from the US and others for allegedly supporting terrorism – also pushed for wholesale reform of the United Nations Security Council, which Mr Gaddafi referred to as the “Terror Council” at the UN General Assembly last week, reports Mander.

Fed shows interest in alacrity

To prevent inflation from taking off, the Federal Reserve will need to start boosting interest rates quickly and aggressively once the economy is back on firmer footing, Fed officials warned Tuesday. “I expect that when it comes time to tighten monetary policy, my colleagues and I will move with an alacrity that, if needed, will be equal in speed and intensity” to when the Fed was slashing rates to battle the recession and the financial crisis, said Richard Fisher, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. Although Fisher has a reputation for being one of the Fed’s toughest inflation fighters, it marked the second such warning by a central bank official in recent days. Fed member Kevin Warsh on Friday said the central bank will need to move swiftly when the time comes to raise rates. Charles Plosser, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and also a hawk against inflation, waded into the debate in a speech Tuesday in Easton, Pa., saying the Fed will need to be on guard “to prevent the Second Great Inflation.”

Guns, whisky, and the Wild West

Bartender Randy Shields was serving British brews and Arizona ambers as usual at Shady’s bar in east Phoenix when he saw a customer walk in with a hunting knife strapped to his hip. A disturbing image flashed through his mind — “that knife sliding between my ribs.” The customer willingly turned over the knife while he was in the bar, but Shields still worries about a new Arizona law that goes into effect Wednesday that will allow guns into Arizona bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. Under the law, backed by the National Rifle Association, the 138,350 people with concealed-weapons permits in Arizona will be allowed to bring their guns into bars and restaurants that haven’t posted signs banning them. Those carrying the weapons aren’t allowed to drink alcohol. The new law has Shields and other bar owners and workers wondering: What’s going to happen when guns are allowed in an atmosphere filled with booze and people with impaired judgment? —Update storied, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Sharapova rolls through 2nd round in Tokyo The former world No. 1 Maria Sharapova cruised past Samantha Stosur of Australia 6-0, 6-1 Tuesday in the second round of the Toray Pan Pacific Open. The former top-ranked Russian, who has been struggling since returning from a 10-month injury layoff, will face Alisa Kleybanova, who defeated sixth-seeded Vera Zvonareva 3-6, 6-4, 6-2. Sharapova won her first tournament as a professional at the Japan Open in 2003 and won in Tokyo in 2005. With more seeded players losing Tuesday, including third-seeded Elena Dementieva, she is positioned well for another shot at a title.

Tokyo making environment a priority in Olympics bid Tokyo Govenor Shintaro Ishihara has been spreading the environmental seed into Tokyo’s bid for the 2016 Olympics since the city was named as a finalist. Now the city is taking a hands on approach and showing the far-reaching spread of pollutants and possible effects of global warming using a large, interactive globe. Tokyo’s organizers said Tuesday their plans for the 2016 Games could be a model not just for future Olympics, but for cities worldwide. “If Tokyo, with a dense population of 30 million, can achieve this goal ... it will be great encouragement for the whole world,” said Shin-ichi Takemura, an environmental expert who is part of the Tokyo 2016 design team. Tokyo is competing with Chicago, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro for the right to host the 2016 Olympics. The International Olympic Committee votes Friday, and each of the four cities is trying to set itself apart in these last few days.

Amputee Ken Green hopes to get back to Champions Tour Professional golfer Ken Green had his lower right leg amputated after an accident in June that killed his brother and girlfriend. He said Monday that he hopes to be back on the tour by April. “It’s probably not realistic, July might be better,” Green told The Associated Press. “But I don’t know, I’ve never done this before. The question is, can I get back to the highest level? Our level and just golf are two different worlds.” The five-time winner on the PGA Tour was in his hometown, where pros including Fred Funk, Curtis Strange, Mark Calcavecchia and Phil Blackmar played at the Ridgewood Country Club to help raise money to pay some of his medical and personal expenses. They expect the event will bring in about $150,000, and plan a similar fundraiser in Florida in November. Green was with his brother Billy, his girlfriend Jeannie Hodgin, and his dog Nip on June 8, when the RV his brother was driving blew a tire and went off Interstate 20 near Hickory, Miss, hitting a tree. Ken Green was the only survivor.

Jockey Joe Talamo was aboard Mine That Bird on Tuesday morning in place of regular rider Calvin Borel. The 3-year-old gelding was timed in 1:01.80 for the distance over the synthetic surface. “It went just right,” trainer Chip Woolley said. “I really like the way he’s striding out on this racetrack. It really seems really kind and he’s getting a good hold of it.” Woolley said Mine That Bird’s next scheduled workout would be on Oct. 6. The winner of the Goodwood Stakes earns an automatic berth in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic on Nov. 7.

Not valid with any other offer. Price valid through the end of the year.

Benjamin Jason Cherny of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho passed away at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane, Washington on September 26, 2009. Benjamin was born on November 7, 2002 in Coeur d’Alene to Amanda Buckley and Jason Cherny. He attended Kindermagic Pre-School and Kindergarten and was currently enrolled in first grade at Hayden Meadows Elementary School in Hayden, Idaho. Although small in stature, when he entered a room it exploded with energy, love and boundless enthusiasm. All boy, he enjoyed sports, his friends, and nothing made his day like a hamburger and fries. From his earliest days, his extroverted nature manifested itself and his

sensitivity to others made him a compassionate friend and loving son. Benjamin is survived by his parents, Amanda and Jason and a younger brother Colin, all of Hayden, Idaho. Grandparents on his mother’s side are Bob and Donna Buckley of Sagle, Idaho. He is also survived by his uncles, John Buckley of Daegu, South Korea and Brian Buckley of Denver, Colorado. On his father’s side he is survived by his grandmother, Susan Cherny of Rochester, Minnesota and an aunt, Sarah Cherny of New Orleans, La. A funeral mass will be said for Benjamin on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 at 11:00 at St Pius Catholic church in Coeur d’ Alene.

Remembering Benjamin By Grandmother Donna Buckley Life for Benjamin consisted of dealing with eczema, allergies, and asthma. But this in no way kept him from being all boy and living a happy fun life. He loved life and made it special for those who were lucky enough to share his life. Sort of like Kramer from the Seinfeld series, when he entered a room you knew he was there and he immediately got your attention. Even when he was still in a stroller, he would get into conversations with people nearby and they would always end up asking: “How old is he anyways?” As he got older he would come out with words (good ones, thankfully!) and you would just wonder where he came up with them. He did love books and two of his favorites were “The Red Balloon” and “The Giving Tree.” He was blessed to be very athletic and “wheelies,” “360s” and “catching air” were always goals he was working on. He loved his bike, swimming at the Kroc Center, skiing at Schweitzer and video games. The thing he liked the least was riding in the car. What a waste of time when there were so many fun things he could be doing. Ben also had a very loving and compassionate side, especially when it came to his family. He loved his Mom and told her often how beautiful she was. For Mother’s Day he wanted to get her something special, so Ben and I went to the store and he looked and looked for just the right bracelet and earrings that would do her justice. Finally, after much deliberation he decided on some hanging blue stone earrings (that he was sure were blue diamonds!) and a multi colored bracelet. Only the best for his mom! He loved his dad more than words can say and was always so proud when he would see him in the audience at one of his school programs. He treasured every minute he spent with him. My last conversation with Ben was on September 15 when he called at 7:15 a.m. so that he would be the first to wish me a happy birthday. You could tell from his voice that he was so happy and loving going to 1st grade at Hayden Meadows Elementary School. He was only there a few days, but things were going well and he loved all the new experiences he was having. His brother Colin was also his best friend. They were always together playing laser games, riding bikes and throwing footballs or baseballs. Sometimes they would try new things that were a little scary and knowing Colin was more of a kamikazi kind of spirit, Ben would send Colin out first and if he made it Ben would be right there adding his own flourish. Colin didn’t mind being the scout and felt proud his brother let him go first! But this time Ben went first and we all miss him terribly.

Times are tough in Taxachusetts ... Buying a hot dog from a Rockies game and feeling like you’re being robbed isn’t as bad as actually being robbed of your hot dog ... WORCESTER, Massachusetts (AP) — A Massachusetts man who stole a hot dog from another man sitting under a tree in a park has been sentenced to 18 months in prison. Antonio Judd pleaded guilty Monday in Worcester Central District Court to charges including larceny from a person, the Telegram & Gazette newspaper reported. Police say Judd grabbed the hot dog in August after flashing what appeared to be a gun in Elm Park in Worcester. Police reports say Judd began to devour the hot dog, spilling mustard all over his shirt. They say when he was arrested later he was carrying a pellet gun and a pocket knife. Records show Judd has been sentenced to prison at least three times for offenses including assault and vandalism.
