Conference conundrum

Voters could approve CMC to be a venue for large events This summer, Rayla Kundolf put together the “Life, Unrehearsed” benefit concert for two local high school students battling life-threatening illnesses The Masters Gallery art gallery director searched high and low for an affordable space in Vail to hold the event. But every available spot seemed too small for the concert, including Vail’s Marketplace on Meadow Drive, which played host to the student performers with its Cabaret Nights this summer.


Finally, Kundolf turned to the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek in July, and the event went off without a hitch. But it was that experience of looking for performance space that made Kundolf think more about where a new cultural and conference center could go in Vail. She is now one of an informal group of residents working on a plan to remake the former Colorado Mountain [See CONFERENCE, page 18]

‘We are descendents of aliens’


BOY FOUND ALIVE: 6-year-old Falcon Heene, center, was found hiding in his Fort Collins garage Thursday after the nation was frightened with rumors of him piloting a giant, flying saucer-like balloon through the state. A recent ABC ‘Wifeswap’ show was fraught with quotes about his family’s bizarre theory of existence. See story inside. AP photo.

A late-day surge left stocks with modest advances Thursday as a jump in the price of oil lifted energy companies, offsetting weakness in bank shares. The gains came a day after strong profit reports from JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Intel Corp. vaulted the Dow Jones industrials above the 10,000 level for the first time in a year. The Dow rose 47.08, or 0.5 percent, to 10,062.94. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 4.54, or 0.4 percent, to 1,096.56. The Nasdaq composite index rose 1.06, or less than 0.1 percent, to 2,173.29.

Social Security frozen

Social Security recipients won’t get a cost-of-living increase next year for the first time in more than a third of a century, and that could boost President Barack Obama’s plan to send seniors another round of $250 payments before the congressional elections. More than 50 million Social Security recipients will see no increase in their monthly payments next year, the government said Thursday, the first year without an increase since automatic adjustments were adopted in 1975. Also, Medicare Part B premiums for the vast majority of Social Security recipients will remain frozen at 2009 levels. However, premiums for the Medicare prescription drug program, known [See THE UPDATE, pages 8-9]

Local woman gets six years for stealing $500K Victims paid for her counseling after the stealing began By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

An Eagle County woman will spend six years in state prison for stealing more than $500,000 from the local family that employed her. Darlene Lovato was sentenced yesterday for stealing at least $526,600 over seven years from the Hart family, a local family that had employed her for 11 years. The paper trail goes back seven years because that’s all the records that exist, investigators found. Lovato stole an increasing amount of money each year over all seven years, using schemes that grew increasingly complicated ad bold, said the Harts’ attorney, Daniel Carr. During that time, instead of firing her, the family paid for a psychologist and counseling for Lovato. The Harts hired Lovato in 1999 to help them take care of their home. Seven years ago, she began altering invoices from workers who did jobs there, court records show. She increased the amounts on those invoices, submitted them to the family to be paid, and pocketed the difference. Eventually she started fabricating invoices and pocketed all the money. She was finally caught when she submitted an $18,000 invoice from a pest control company that had not been to the house in more than two and a half years. When the audit was done, the total came to $526,000. Part of Lovato’s sentence is to pay it back at 8 percent interest. “This was a systematic and complicated mechanism to seek out someone else’s assets and take some of it, piece by piece,” District Judge Fred Gannett said in handing down the sentence. “What we see are hundreds of incidences of theft, a pattern of behavior.”

Not the first time Before Lovato worked for the Harts, she worked as a housekeeper in a local hotel. She was caught in 1993 after stealing $300 from a guest’s purse, prosecutors said yesterday. Not long after she went to work for the Harts in 1999, she was caught going through the coat pockets of the family’s guests during a party at the house. Instead of firing her, the Harts paid for a psychologist and counseling sessions. “After being caught and confronted, she became more secretive and created a grander scheme,” Carr said. The Harts paid Lovato $50,000 a year, funded a 401(k), took her on trips with the family and bought her an Audi A8. As a bonus they gave her Home Depot stock that, at one time, was worth $60,000, Carr said. The Hart family helped found the Home Depot chain. The house Lovato and her family built is worth $932,000, according to Eagle County records. “It’s not a pound of flesh we’re asking for, we’re asking for a reasonable response,” Carr said. Lovato’s attorney, Terry O’Connor, argued that Lovato was addicted to pills and that’s what made her steal. “There is no evidence of drug addiction, but there is evidence of behavior,” Gannett said in rejecting the argument. Gannett said he would likely reconsider the sentence, and whether she should be moved to community corrections from state prison. “The forefront of all this is you coming to grips with this issue,” Gannett said told Lovato. “I don’t think prison does anything other than hide you away from the rest of us. It offers no rehabilitation.”

‘Descendents of aliens’ Family of missing boy found safe holds bizarre theory of existence By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor The father of a Fort Collins boy who was found safe yesterday after being feared to have floated off in a flying saucer-like balloon was warned that his kids were picking up his “obnoxious” behavior on the television show “Wifeswap.” Sheriff Jim Alderman said yesterday the boy was doing fine after the nation was terrified by video footage of the flying saucer-like balloon embarking on a 50-mile journey through two Colo. counties. The balloon craft, which was engineered by the boy’s father, Richard Heene, tipped precariously at times before gliding to the ground in a field, with people fearing the worst as 6-year-old Falcon Heene nowhere to be found. One of the boy’s two older brothers said he saw Heene get into a box that was attached to the craft. The box was not found when the balloon landed; several people reported seeing something fall from the balloon while it was in the air. The boy apparently had been in the family’s garage attic the whole time.

Hoax? Editor and Publisher’s Greg Mitchell questioned whether the incident was “All a hoax perpetrated by his father, who is ‘storm chaser’ and appeared on the reality TV show “Wife Swap.” In one particular altercation between Richard and his wife by trade on the show, he says “Every man in America is [saying] ‘You tell her.’” Neilson TV ratings in 2008 said Wifeswap garnered about 5.25 million viewers per episode; the 2000 U.S. census says there are about 140 million men in America. The overestimation of his show’s popularity, coupled with the fact that Richard’s real wife was seen in the

‘Descendents of aliens’ The incident comes at the heels of the Heene family’s recent appearance on the television program “Wifeswap,” where the boy’s mother, Mayumi Heene, told cameras “Richard and I actually believe we ourselves are descendents of aliens.” Richard Keene went on to say that he had a vision of being contacted by aliens after passing out in a fast food restaurant. He said in the dream the aliens told him “we are your parents” after he asked who they were. It was the family’s second appearance on the ABC program. In the first, cameras caught the father who Richard traded wives with saying to Richard “You’re obnoxious, your kids are picking that up.”

New vision for local schools Former Vail Valley teacher organizes book drives By Dawn Witlin Special to the Mountaineer Melanie Molloy doesn’t teach anymore, but education is still her passion. During her seven years combined instruction experience at Gypsum and Red Hill elementary schools, she remembers that ever quest for new material. “I know books are something that teachers are always looking for more of,” the Edwards resident said. Molloy, an independent consultant for Us Borne Books in Tulsa, Okla., organized a book drive for Eagle County elementary schools in conjunction with Eagle Valley Vision and Eye Pieces of Vail featuring the children’s book “Paul Needs Specs.” Written by Bernard Cohen and Geoff Kelly, the vividly illustrated children story tells the tale of a young boy who must see the optometrist for glasses after he trips over his toys. “I had never seen a book like “Paul Needs Specs,” which is great because it’s a common thing that children in elementary school go through,” said Molloy. “I thought it would be perfect because getting glasses can be a really scary thing and this book helps them through that.” As soon as Molloy showed the book to the eye centers, they were won over. “Paul Needs Specs is a beautiful book with great illustrations and a great message, as soon as I showed it to them they said it was perfect,” she said. Even more perfect was that Us Borne Books matches 50 percent of the proceeds from any money donated to provide books to schools. “It’s really great to be able to use this service because they are able to get much more bang for their buck, everybody wants to give back to schools but it’s so expensive,” said Molloy. The eye centers raised enough money to donate 32 books, which equated to three to four copies of Paul Needs Specs books for every elementary school in Ea-

32 copies of the children’s book “Paul Needs Specs” were donated to Eagle County elementary schools by Eagle Valley Vision and Eye Pieces last month, in a donation drive organized by former teacher and independent bookseller Melanie Malloy.

gle County, including Eagle County Charter School. Pleased with the success of the eye center book drive, held in September, Molloy also approached Vail Honeywagon to share in the giving. Honeywagon was able to donate 100 books on trash collection and recycling to the students of Children’s Garden of Learning in Vail. Matt Donovan, owner of Vail Honeywagon delivered the books to teachers Thursday. “We ordered a children’s book called “Trash and Recycling,” and once they are read by the students, we’ll show up with the trucks for a show and tell,” Donovan said. “It’s a good book because little kids love trash, they are amazed when they see us in our big trucks rolling down the street.” Donovan said he’s excited to see what happens with the students this year, hoping the show and tell will be such a smash at the garden Honeywagon will be able to make it happen again next year.

Pills, pills, for all your ills 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. Morphine Math: Here’s one of those story problems we all loved in math class, and might apply to ObamaCare. If Morphine Man has 180 morphine pills, and takes five pills a day, and someone steals 30 of them, how long will everyone be able to tolerate enormous amounts of pain and frustration stemming from eating chili cheese fries while watching the healthcare debate on C-SPAN? Because Morphine Man didn’t have a calculator, he called the police. The police officer did have a calculator and replied, “Not as long as you might think because Mrs. Morphine was also taking one pill a day.” And so, unlike most math, the answer to Morphine Man’s little story problem is inexact, which makes it perfect for the healthcare debate because it covers people who’ve obviously suffered grievously from a lack of governmental oversight, an ill that ObamaCare will soon cure. Because the pills were generics, which pharmaceutical companies really hate because the profit margins are so low, the number of pills was high but the price was low, the alleged heist came to about $115. ObamaCare will cure that, too. Or so we’re told. Pill Pals: It was a bad idea for Pill Pall to steal pain pills from his pal when his pal had just had dental surgery. On the other hand, his lawyer said Pill Pal and his pal were co-conspirators in what’s called “Pharming,” or farming for pharmaceuticals – so no one’s fleece is as white as snow in this deal. Pharming is doing about anything you can to obtain pain medications in pill form – not the kind the kind-hearted reefer retailers grow and

sell as they further the cause, but actual medications for which people are willing to exchange large bundles of American dollars. Pill Pal’s pal had just been to the dentist and had a bottle of pills. As they were riding to work in his pal’s truck, Pill Pal asked, “Can I have some pills?” Pill Pal’s pal responded, “Why certainly not!” or words to that effect. Any criminal will tell you that to operate outside the bounds of the law, you have to be extremely scrupulous, which is a lesson no one on Wall Street or Washington seems to have learned. Pill Pal apparently Pill Pal snuck into his pal’s place of business and stole his stash, leaving two pills behind. That was extreme dental bummerhood for Pill Pal’s pal, because, as you recall, he’d just come from his dentist and a round of oral surgery. It might be said that when he lost his wisdom teeth, the pal also lost his wisdom. The same could be said for Pill Pal, because he forged a prescription for more pills and headed to the pharmacy – to go “pharming,” without his pal. The pal ratted out Pill Pal, which is where Johnny Law got involved. Pill Pal told the judge that his vision was clouded by prescription pain killers, but now that he was pill free his mind and vision were clear and he’d seen the error of his ways. He pleaded guilty and prepared to face his punishment. But before he checked in as a guest at the Eagle County Crossbar Hotel, he decided he needed a tan, so he split for Florida, where one acquires narcotics by pulling up to a stoplight, rolling down the window and hollering, “Yo, has anyone got any drugs?” While in Florida, he had an epiphany, a Damascus Road (Damascus Beach?) experience, and split the Sunshine State to return to Eagle County and finally face the music, and we ain’t talkin’ Pavarotti. He’ll be spending the next four years on supervised probation.

Spooktacular at the Ritz Annual gala will benefit Eagle County Charter Academy By Geoff Mintz Special to the Mountaineer

Call us at 977-7203

The Eagle County Charter Academy (ECCA) is hosting its 8th Ultimate Halloween Gala fundraiser at the Ritz-Carlton in Bachelor Gulch a week from today on Friday, Oct. 23. The theme for the party is “Night at the Opera,” inspired by the renowned and appropriatelyspooky “Phantom of the Opera.” Fundraising Development Manager Dawn Harker says the party is characterized by its distinctive décor, entertainment and outlandish costumes. “It’s not a typical charity event. At the Ultimate Halloween Gala, the people are actually part of the decorations. The creativity of the costumes and the personas people adopt when they are dressed up are main components of the experience,” she said. Admission to the event includes a fine three-course dinner created by the Ritz’s Executive Chef Mark Ferguson. “Holding the event at the Ritz-Carlton in Bachelor Gulch has brought a level of sophistication that fits perfectly with the theme ‘The Phantom of the Opera,’” said Harker. The Jonny Mogambo Band will perform funk, rock, rhythm and groove. Mogambo has been playing throughout Colorado, nationally, and internationally for over fifteen years. Whether performing slopeside as a high-energy solo acoustic act or with the complete Jonny Mogambo Band, he is a longstanding Valley favorite. The Ultimate Halloween Gala will also feature a live auction with exciting items such as a Spring Break getaway in Puerto Los Cobos, a Tuscan adventure, dinner for eight at Spago and an “Out of this World Cocktail Party” at the famous Charles Deaton-designed Sculptured House on Genesee Mountain outside of Denver. There will also be a silent auction including a fournight stay at America’s newest ski resort Moonlight

Riverwalk, 1st & Main Building • Edwards, CO 926.7001

Kelly Yeap, manager of Asian Spice Bistro, stands before the entrance to the restaurant, located in the Riverwalk at Edwards. The menu will feature Valley rarities such as Dim Sum and other Southeast Asian recipes from Malasia, Thailand and Singapore. Asian Spice Bistro is set to open some time next week.

The spice is right Asian Spice Bistro set to open next week in Edwards Riverwalk By Dawn Witlin Special to the Mountaineer Come on down! The menu of a new Asian restaurant in Edwards captures the essence of new and old world spices. Chef Long Foong prepares the dishes at Asian Spice Bistro using such Asian favorites as lemongrass and turmeric, but isn’t afraid to throw cayenne, coriander and black peppercorn of traditional America into the mix. “Bistro is like a mixture of east meets west, you can make Cantonese, American, Chinese and Indian all mixed together,” said the new restaurant’s manager Kelly Yeap. Yeap, who moved to the Valley from New Hampshire, said restaurants on the East Coast inspired many of her new menu items. “The trend in New York City right

now is using a variety of flavors and (Foong) is very knowledgeable and skilled with Malaysian, Thai and Singapore, Southeast Asian styles,” she said. “They all use the same spices.” There are many signature items on the menu, such as Malaysian X.O. Fried Rice, comprised of shrimp, squid, roast pork, egg, scallion and onions, all tied together with Chef Foong’s own made from scratch seafood sauce. The sauce is also prepared for the Asian Grilled Mahi-Mahi over eggplant, with green beans and onions. The Panang Curry is also a homegrown favorite of Chef Foong, a chicken breast seasoned with strong dried chilies, and evident flavors of coriander and lemongrass. The menu was prepared with simplicity, but patrons are encouraged to test the chef’s skill.

“Even though the menu is very traditional, short and simple, if there’s something else someone wants to try, let me know and we will make it,” Yeap said. Rarely seen in the valley are Dim Sum dishes, which compliment the bistro’s lunch menu. Such Dim Sum favorites as Har Gow steamed shrimp dumplings, east coast inspired Boneless Ribs and Roti Prata Indian flatbread, are represented. The prices at Asian Spice Bistro are extremely modest, with $8 to $10 lunch specials, served until 3 p.m. daily, and a nothing over $20 dinner menu. The restaurant space itself is cozy, with black tabletops and bar space, an abundance of Asian lanterns, and a party room accommodating up to 14 guests. “We want people to come in and feel like they’re in Asia,” said Yeap. Asian Spice Bistro is located at 69 Edwards Rd., and will open it’s doors sometime next week, Yeap estimates between the 18th and 20th. For more information, call 926-6628.

Sandusky springs to Olympics

Patrick Sandusky, the spokesman for Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympics, was selected Wednesday as the acting communications chief for the U.S. Olympic Committee. Sandusky begins his new job at the end of the month and will serve through the Vancouver games. The USOC has been without a top public-relations person since Darryl Seibel left in June. Before his work with Chicago 2016, Sandusky helped manage communications for London’s successful bid for the 2012 Olympics as a vice president of Hill & Knowlton’s sports marketing practice. He also has experience with the World Cup, Wimbledon and NASCAR on behalf of clients such as Gillette, Nestle and Allstate.

Bankrupt newspaper not marketable?

The New York Times Co. has scrapped its plan to sell The Boston Globe, Reuters reports. Times chief executives thanked employees of The Boston Globe for helping improve its financial condition enough for it to drop plans to sell the newspaper. The Globe reports Janet Robinson told employees at a meeting Thursday that the newspaper still needs to bring in more revenue and declined to rule out additional job cuts. Robinson spoke to about 200 Globe workers a day after the Times Co. announced it had decided not to sell. Earlier this year, the Times Co. threatened to close the Globe, saying it could lose $85 million this year. The newspaper’s unions then agreed to deep wage and benefit cuts, and the paper made a series of other changes to help the bottom line.

On Thursday, a day after his birthday and becoming an adult, supporters mailed an application package to Guinness World Record in London seeking to stake his place in the record book. Magar’s family initially filed a claim when he was just 14 years old but it was rejected since he was not an adult and there was a chance he might grow, said Min Bahadur Ranamagar of the Khagendra Thapa Magar Foundation. Ranamagar said it was not clear how long the certification process would take. When Magar applied four years ago, Guinness officials said he would need to be examined by a doctor to confirm he had stopped growing. The current record is held by 21-year-old He Pingping of China, who is 29 inches (73 centimeters).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------day, a daring nine-year-old boy asked President Barack Obama “why do people hate you?” Obama called on the boy, Tyren Scott, during his first visit to hurricane-ravaged New Orleans as president, AFP reports. “I have to say, why do people hate you? They supposed to love you. God is love,” Tyren, from Paulina, Louisiana asked. Obama, appeared tickled, answered: “I did get elected president, so not everybody hates me now... I got a whole lot of votes. If you were watching TV lately, it seems like everybody’s just getting mad all the time. And you know, I think that you’ve got to take it with a grain of salt. Some of it is just what’s called politics.”

Golden State contributes to the economy

A Californian man who held 50 different jobs in 50 different US states in 50 weeks is set to write a book about his adventures, reports the L.A. Times. Dan Seddiqui, 27, of Los Altos, left his dead end office job in Skokie, Illinois and set out to prove to that despite a sluggish economy, there were jobs out there. Seddiqui tried his hand as a cellar master at a Napa Valley winery, a lobsterman, a jazz conductor, a TV weatherman and even a Las Vegas wedding planner. “My favorite job was probably as a bartender in Louisiana in the middle of Mardi Gras. I got to meet so many great people,” he told the Times. “My least favorite was trying to be a lobster-man. I learned that I got very seasick, and that lobsters do a lot of pinching.” The book, “Living the Map,” will hopefully be on sale by the end of the year, Seddiqui said.

Polanski screenplay does time behind bars

Roman Polanski is finishing his screenplay for his film “The Ghost,” based on Robert Harris’s novel, The Times of London reports. A friend of Polanski told the paper: “He can make his wishes known from his cell. I don’t think he can make phone calls, but he can communicate. The Ghost features a character resembling former Prime Minister Tony Blair, a once-popular leader whose popularity suffered as a result of his allegiance to the U.S. in the war on terror. Polanski, 76, finished editing the film on the day of his arrest last month on a U.S. warrant and wanted it to be completed even though he was in prison.

In other video news

California utilities and environmental groups Tuesday urged state energy regulators to ban the most power-hungry televisions from stores as a way to lower electricity demand. A rule before the California Energy Commission would impose the nation’s first energy-efficiency requirements for flat-screen TVs, a mandatory standard that is expected to be copied by other states. A vote on the standard could come as early as next month. Energy commissioners say the rule could play a key role in reducing electricity use as consumers buy larger TVs and put more of them in their homes. It could also help California meet its 2006 global warming law, which calls for the state to cut its greenhouse gases by 25 percent by 2020. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

On Wednesday, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was dropped from a group seeking to buy the St. Louis Rams. A day later Limbaugh lashed out at NFL union leader DeMaurice Smith, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the media. On his syndicated show Thursday, Limbaugh said he was approached by St. Louis Blues chairman Dave Checketts earlier this year about participating in a Rams bid. Checketts assured him his involvement as a minority investor had been vetted by the NFL, he said. “I said to him at this meeting, ‘Are you aware of the firestorm?’ He said ‘We wouldn’t have approached you if we hadn’t taken care of that,”’ said Limbaugh, a conservative favorite who is reviled by many liberals. Limbaugh added that Checketts had told him his involvement had been cleared at the “highest levels of the NFL.” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Colts owner Jim Irsay each expressed misgivings this week at a league-wide meeting about Limbaugh’s involvement, with Goodell saying Limbaugh had made “polarizing” comments and Irsay vowing to vote against him. On Wednesday, Checketts said Limbaugh had been dropped from the bid. Limbaugh said Checketts telephoned on Tuesday, asking him to withdraw from the group. Limbaugh responded that he wouldn’t withdraw and that Checketts would have to “go public and fire me,”

and thought the news would be made public Thursday morning. Limbaugh said he’s “lost nothing” over the episode and vowed to continue being the “biggest non-paid promoter of the sport.”

Nadal, Djokovic advance in China

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic had straight-set wins Thursday to advance to quarterfinals of the Shanghai Masters on a day when two more players retired with injuries. The top-seeded Nadal, aiming for his first title since winning the Rome Masters in May, defeated Tommy Robredo 6-1, 6-4.Djokovic moved into the quarterfinals by stopping German qualifier Rainer Schuettler 6-4, 6-2, closing out the match with back-to-back aces. In the quarterfinals, Nadal will face Ljubicic and Djokovic will play Gilles Simon.

Ballesteros’ foundation will be the event’s official charity. The 52-year-old Ballesteros said his treatment was proceeding well and that “things are going under par ” regarding his overall health after numerous operations last year to remove a malignant tumor.

band is tough… but seven guys trying to agree on a name makes it even more difficult.” You might remember Laub from Flux5, which has traditionally opened up the Live! In Minturn concert series. A couple of months ago, Dave Laub and Matt Cheek (Flux5 guitarist) joined forces with Summit County’s blues-rock band, Big Richard. Although the bands were playing different music, all of the musicians were influenced by New Orleans funk. There was an immediate and obvious chemistry among all the musicians that inspired them to join forces. The new band debuted at Owsley’s Golden Road (support-

ing Polytoxic) and received an overwhelmingly positive response. “You never really can comprehend a band’s potential until you go on stage in front of a crowd,” Laub said. “It’s just not the same when you’re in a practice room hammering out parts, writing and arranging tunes. The interaction of musicians and fans has the potential to take a band to new heights.” The Lionel Young Band comes next in the series, featuring Lionel Young, an award-winning blues musician who performed with James Taylor at Red Rocks last summer.

CONFERENCE CENTER CONUNDRUM College site at Cascade Village into a performance/ conference complex. “The Vilar is wonderful, and the team up there is great, but there is no place to do something like this,” Kundolf said of her event.

Conference center fund: $9.5M and growing Vail has more than $9.5 million in a conference center fund that originally came from lodging and sales taxes after voters approved a ballot measure in 2002. Voters would have to approve any plan to use that money in the future. Some town council candidates said they’re interested in hearing more about the idea, both at a candidate forum on Wednesday night and in conversations with the Mountaineer (please see related story.) “It’s a great place for meetings and the arts,” said Buddy Lazier, a Vail town council candidate and family owner of the Tivoli Lodge. Lazier said he is also open to other conference-related ideas, too, including a health and wellness center promoted by another group of Vail business leaders. Voters could be asked for their opinion next November, the next time a regularly scheduled election could be


held, Lazier said.

Plenty of potential new events With a seat on Vail’s Commission on Special Events board, Kundolf has a ton of ideas for events that could use the space. A movie night would be good, as would Bravo! music rehearsals and ensemble stage events, Kundolf said. The Colorado Film Commission might even be interested in offices there. “This would not take away from the Vilar. It would be like the workhorse of the community,” Kundolf said. Plans call for turning the $16 million building into luxury condominiums, but they’re on hold with the current economic downturn, said Steve Lindstrom, an owner of the building. “We’re all ears. It wouldn’t take much to get the building back in shape for performing arts. That’s what it was built for,” Lindstrom said. Both Kundolf and Lindstrom said it was premature to talk about cost. The building’s main theater has a 1,200-square-foot stage and seats 275 people. A smaller theater seats 75 people. In total, the building is 13,000 square feet.

CANDIDATES VIEWS ON CONFERENCE FUNDS how that money should be used. The idea is to get more visitors in town, especially in the resort economy’s shoulder seasons — spring and fall, several candidates said in a forum hosted by the Vail Chamber and Business Association on Wednesday. At the same time, the former Colorado Mountain College site could be made into a cultural and performing arts center, according to some community leaders. (See related story.) “We need to start talking to the community about how they want to use the funds, rather than just let it sit and collect interest, because collecting interest does not bring people into town,” said Kim Newbury, a town councilwoman who is running to retain her seat. Candidate Scott Proper, a Millenium Bank vice president, agreed. “I don’t know, because there needs to be a more collaborative process to get more community input, that’s how I feel,” Proper said. When it comes to buying property in Vail for a new conference center, $10 million isn’t very much money, Susie Tjossem pointed out. The candidate also runs the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum. With-

[From page 1]

out making a judgment about what might be the best use of the money, Tjossem said the money should be used for something “unique and onbrand for Vail.” “It’s going to take a collaborative impact with other donors,” Tjossem said. A health and wellness-related center or business plan is an idea put forward by an informal group of business leaders in recent months. Dobson Ice Arena also could be “retrofitted” to create a new conference center space, said Kevin Foley, another town council candidate and current council member. Conference center space also has been suggested for a two-luxury-hotel project proposed at the Lionshead parking structure and at EverVail, a new ski village planned by Vail Resorts for 10 acres or so west of Lionshead.

Dobson retrofit idea A platform on the ice at Dobson is currently used for concerts and other events. A “retrofit” it the arena would make it function even more along the lines of what’s offered at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Foley said. Any leftover money in the fund could be used for market-


[From page 1]

ing, Foley said. “[Dobson] could hold mediumsized events. The retrofit fits with that mission,” Foley said. Putting a cultural and performing arts center in the former Colorado Mountain College spot in Vail’s Cascade Village — and possibly using existing funds for it — sounds pretty interesting to Kerry Donovan, a candidate who also runs the Minturn Community Fund. “We have this building that was in the public sphere, and we lost it,” Donovan said of the space, which included a movie theater. “There was a lot of community feedback, so it would be nice to return it to a public use.” All of the ideas sound interesting, but the question wouldn’t probably couldn’t be put to voters in less than a year, said Buddy Lazier, a town council candidate and family owner of the Tivoli Lodge. One of the most important issues is to make sure the future decision-making processes are open and transparent, Lazier said. “[A year] would give us time to study all of the possibilities,” Lazier said. “If it’s a well-thought-out, transparent idea, I believe it will pass with the voters.”

NEW BROKERAGE FIRM IN VAIL fect time for the new endeavor. Located in the Mountain Haus, just before the covered bridge in Vail Village, the small boutique office has assembled a “combination of the best, top-notch brokers that all have great skill sets, which is important to the industry in a tough market,” they said. “We’re doing it now because, although it is a tough market, we need to position ourselves as things improve. And we’re seeing signs of improvement,” said Stockton. “We’re starting to see buyers stick their heads out again. They’re starting to realize that there are some great opportunities right now to acquire some real estate in Vail.” Stockton and Denton, who worked together at Rob Byrne & Associates, recently purchased the brokerage firm from Kraig Forbes. Their affiliation with Sotheby’s is new, however, and represents the first-ever startup to partner with the prestigious real estate network. Craig Denton has been living in Vail since 1975 and began his real estate career in 1978 with Vail Associates Real Estate. In 1986 he left VA to open his own real estate firm with partners, and, in 2001, he moved to Beaver Creek to assist Forbes Real Estate prior to joining Ron Byrne five years ago. “He’s a great partner to have,” said Stockton. “He’s owned brokerage businesses and has been involved in other start-ups before.” Tye Stockton moved to Vail 19 years ago after successful time spent on Wall Street with Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch. He moved to the mountains primarily for the “community and quality of life” that Vail is known for. He worked at Sonnenalp Real Estate prior to joining Rob Byrne. Stockton and Denton interpreted the slow-down in the marketplace as a perfect opportunity to make the move. “I don’t think we could have negotiated and put it all together in a fast moving market because we’d be too busy selling,” said Denton.

Ritz Carlton Residences Ascent/SIR has acquired the listing for the new Ritz Carlton Residences in Vail, which was a key development in the purchase of their new office. With his recent success in selling out the Willow project on Bishop Park, Stockton was approached by Vail Resorts, the Ritz’s developer, and Ascent/SIR is now the exclusive listing agent for the 71 Ritz Carlton units – 47 of which are currently under contract. The residences range in price from just under $2 million to just over $9 million. With a price per square foot between $1000 and $2100 (an average of about $1600/ sqare foot) it’s one of the best values in Vail, Denton says. The prices have been reduced 20 percent since the initial planning to align with the changing marketplace. “I think the message that rings loud and clear is the

Ritz Carlton standards. The way they treat their customers is like none other,” said Denton. “There is also a quality of construction that you can expect from the Ritz,” Stockton added. “You have a developer, a general contractor and the Town of Vail, all committed to quality. But then the Ritz inspects every room and signs off on everything. From the soundproofing to the materials used, it’s a higher standard.” The residences will include all of the world-class amenities that have come to be expected from the Ritz Carlton name – year-round indoor/outdoor pool, a 3500 square-foot fitness facility, a double-height great room/ library and dining service to name a few. Membership to the Arielle Club in Lionshead is also included. The Ritz Carlton Residences will offer valet service to and from the ski mountain. However, the proposed Ever Vail chairlift would sit approximately six hundred feet away from the development, so direct chairlift access is likely in the future. Changed Market With new construction at $1000 per square-foot, the Vail real estate market is attracting buyers that are starting to realize there are great opportunities out there. “Every buyer that I’m talking to now would not have been a buyer a year and a half ago,” Stockton said. “With contracted prices, it causes opportunity buyers to say there’s a real opportunity to own a piece of real estate in Vail at a substantial discount to the 3000/foot numbers that we saw not too long ago.” “It’s a changed market. Let’s move on with it,” said Denton. “We’ve been through a few changes in ownership with Vail Resorts. But the name has never gone away, and the mountain has never gone away. So, we know the stability of this ski resort and this town is something that will never change.”

VAIL SHOWCASED IN NEW FILM able to showcase Vail’s diversity in both terrain and talent in the film. If you are a true local you may recognize a few hidden Vail zones that appear in the move, but don’t expect the exact locations to be revealed. Local rail shots from Vail, Beaver Creek, and Edwards with athletes Tanner Hall, John Spriggs, and Dane Tudor can also be seen. So what is a dub-cork 1260 you may ask? Spriggs explains it like this: “It’s a double off-axis spin; coming off-axis twice throughout the rotation.” He also adds with a chuckle, “Oh yeah, and if you don’t grab, it’s not legit.” Spriggs broke both eye sockets and nose attempting this trick in the backcountry in April, but came back strong this past summer where he secured the closing park segment shot of “Ev-
