Shooting in West Vail

One dead, three injured as Gunman opens fire at local business By Dawn Witlin Police arrested longtime Vail resident Richard “Rossy” Moreau after they say he went on a deadly shooting spree last night that left one dead at a West Vail business. Vail Police Chief Dwight Henninger knew little of Moreau, an Army Veteran, except that he has had several run-ins LEFT: An officer rushes from the scene of a fatal shooting at the Sandbar last night that also left three people injured, one dead last night.

said, his eyes welling up with tears. Sandbar employees said Jason Barber, general manager of the Sandbar who took over for Johnson in August, was among the victims but was doing OK after being shot in the arm. Tom Robbins, who has lived in Vail since 1977, was working next door to the scene when he heard gunfire. “All I heard were a number of shots fired that sounded like they were coming from outside the bar and when I stuck my head out the door, I heard more coming from inside the bar,” he said. “It’s hard to [See WEST VAIL SHOOTING, page 16]

Beav’ to get locker service this season By John LaConte

In a victory for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House narrowly passed landmark health care legislation Saturday night to expand coverage to tens of millions who lack it and place tough new restrictions on the insurance industry. Republican opposition was nearly unanimous. The 220-215 vote cleared the way for the Senate to begin debate on the issue that has come to overshadow all others in Congress. A triumphant Speaker Nancy Pelosi likened the legislation to the passage of Social Security in 1935 and Medicare 30 years later. “It provides coverage for 96 percent of Americans. It offers everyone, regardless of health or income, the peace of mind that comes from knowing they will have access to affordable health care when they need it,” said Rep. John Dingell, the 83-year-old Michigan lawmaker who has introduced national health insurance in every Congress since succeeding his father in 1955. In the run-up to a final vote, conservatives from the two political parties joined forces to impose tough new restrictions [See THE UPDATE, pages 6-7]

Here’s something you thought you may never see at Beaver Creek: a public-use locker facility at the base of the hill.

Adventure race title event begins today

Team Nike/Beaver Creek among favorites By Geoff Mintz Team Nike/Beaver Creek, the world’s most successful adventure racing team, is heading out into the elements at the AR World Championship in Portugal today. Captained by Valley local Mike Kloser, Team Beaver Creek has won essentially every major AR event in the world, including the AR World Championship three times. The team, which is coming off a strong second-place finish at the Wulong Mountain Adventure Race in China this summer, is considered among the top contenders in Portugal. The XPD Portugal World Championship brings together 64 teams from 27 countries for a five-day, 500-mile race that combines the disciplines of running, trekking, orienteering, mountain biking, whitewater and flat-water kayaking, ropes and, a new addition, inline skating.

Monique Merrill of Summit County and Kiwis Chris Forne, a world champion orienteer, and George Christison, who competed with Kloser at Wulong, round out the team. There’s a twist to this year’s event that changes the dynamic of the race, Kloser said. The teams can elect to go for a number of controls (checkpoints) that, if reached, award time bonuses. But there is also a fixed time of 125 hours, in which the teams have to finish the race. If a team misses that final checkpoint, they are essentially out of the race. As a result, the top teams are going to gamble to try to score extra controls, while risking the finish line. “It changes the strategy quite a bit. If you miscalculate, it’s game over,” Kloser said. “But the good thing for us is that Chris (Forne) is so strong with the map and compass that, if he’s on his game, we

should have the advantage in that respect. “We also have to keep in mind our sleep strategy because, when you’re sleep deprived, you just don’t think well. And we’re going to be sleep deprived,” he said, “But, are we going to be less sleep deprived and more coherent than the other teams?” Kloser said that ideally the team will get 2-3 hours of sleep per day, so his definition of “sleep deprived” might be a little different from yours and mine. When asked if he enjoys the world championship race, Kloser said with moderate enthusiasm, “Sure, I like the big races. I like the challenge of a big race, going against all the top teams in the world. It’s that much more rewarding when you are successful - and usually with that is the financial reward as well.” Always calm and focused, Kloser said he thinks the team has a good shot this

year. “It’ll be a tough one,” he said, “because there’s always a number of top teams you could throw in a hat for the win. But having a solid team with the experience we’ve got, we should be in good shape.”

SSCV Celebration of Winter is November 21 By Dawn Witlin Special to the Mountaineer Ski and Snowboard Club Vail is not an exclusive club, but rather a staple of the community, which has fertilized the roots of the Valley since 1962. And the club’s Now. 21 Celebration of Winter on Golden Peak commemorates not only its members and docents, but everyone who loves to ski and snowboard in Vail. The event is a “new incarnation” of the club’s annual gala celebrating its Leadership Council, to usher in a new generation of snowmaking atop Golden Peak, said Nigel Cooper, director of gifts at SSCV. A community torchlight ski down Vail Resorts Golden Peak Competition Center will begin the festivities, followed by fireworks and a ribbon cutting ceremony at the arena’s base with world champion skier Lindsey Vonn.

Escape Winter! For Rent

The competition center, which just received a multimillion dollar snowmaking system thanks to the fundraising efforts of SSCV, allows club members and skiers like Vonn to tear up the slopes earlier in the season. “This is really a celebration of the new opening of our enhanced ski making operation on Golden Peak,” said Cooper. “It’s not limited to kids that ski with Ski and Snowboard Club Vail, anyone can come. It’s not a closed function.” From the ribbon cutting ceremony, skiers will follow a bagpiper to assemble in front of Pepi’s restaurant and around the Children’s Fountain. A children’s bib art competition will be judged by the town’s Art in Public Places council between 7 and 8 p.m. “The theme this year is Golden Peak and whatever Golden Peak means to kids we want to see in their art, if they don’t have a bib, they can make their own, the main thing is to be as creative as they want, I don’t

Making a difference at Berry Creek Principal Robert Cuevas receives 2009 President’s Award from Colorado Association for Bilingual Education By Holly Bass Special to the Mountaineer Robert Cuevas, principal of Berry Creek Middle School in Edwards, sees his job as a way to make a difference to the students that attend Berry Creek. And his efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. Cuevas received the 2009 President’s Award from the Colorado Association for Bilingual Education (CABE) last month and attended the associations’ conference, where he accepted his award. Cuevas also was asked to teach a breakout session, where he talked about his work at Berry Creek and how the school has grown academically and socially. Berry Creek is a bilingual school and the award recognizes a dedicated administrator at such a school. Cuevas was recommended for the award by a member of the association and said that he is very honored. “For someone to notice and see that we are making a difference is nice,” he said. Cuevas said he is OK with just getting things done without any recognition, but he is grateful nonetheless. But Cuevas doesn’t’ take all the credit. “I really feel that it’s our staff, students and community. It’s really a team effort,” he said, adding that parents play a big role in the school’s success. “We are lucky with the parents we have and their dedication to their children’s education.” Cuevas is in his fourth year at Berry Creek and makes a difference by making an effort to get to know each student by name. He says that saying a simple “hello” or “good morning” as they walk through the halls shows the students that he cares about them and their education. Before teaching at Berry Creek, Cuevas earned his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Colorado and taught Spanish and English as a second language for four years at Eagle Valley High School. He then earned his Master’s degree in multi-cultural bilingual education from Colorado University Boulder and his Master’s degree in administration from Adams State College. He was the assistant principle at Delta High School before becoming principal at Berry Creek. Cuevas moved to Vail when he was six-years-old from Mexico and had to learn English as a second language. Because Berry Creek is 80 percent Latino, and mostly English as a second language learners, Cuevas says he can relate to the students and this helps him be a better administrator. Berry Creek has three core values: knowing right from wrong and always doing what’s right, treating

people with respect, and always trying your best. Cuevas tells his students that if they follow these three values then they will be successful at school, and in life. “Mr. Cuevas is a real role model to his students. He is also very in tune with them and makes BCMS a fun and safe learning environment. My daughter blossomed upon attending BCMS and the teachers and staff are just awesome,” says Janeil Turnbull, who is a parent of an eight grader at Berry Creek and also on the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) board at the school. Cuevas also implemented uniforms at Berry Creek in 2007 to improve student’s behavior and performance and he helped get a team of teachers together who increased student proficiency rates on the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP), according to the Eagle Valley Schools Web site. Cuevas said he wants his students to leave Berry Creek prepared for high school and with the ability to go where they want in life. “I see ourselves as a family at Berry Creek,” Cuevas says.

Treasurer’s tax auction pours $4.3M into county By Randy Wyrick Because Eagle County Treasurer Karen Sheaffer and her staff raised more than $4.3 million in one day, the county’s 83 taxing districts get paid. Sheaffer held the county’s largest tax lien sale since 1989, auctioning of 710 tax bills to 174 investors, collecting $4,374,673. In addition, they sold $43,530 in premium bids. They sold every tax bill except for $37,000 worth of bills on open space tax and irrigation ditches. Last year’s tax lien sale collected $897,000. And why would you buy someone else’s delinquent tax bill? Sheaffer is glad you asked. “Money,� she says succinctly. Investing in a delinquent tax bill pays 10 percent interest guaranteed. No Wall Street weasels to dip into your till. You pay their property taxes, they pay you 10 percent on your investment. “Eagle County’s tax sale is a great investment,� Sheaffer said. “If I were an investor I’d take a run an it. The worst that can happen is that you get 10 percent return on your money.�

If they don’t pay their taxes for three years, you get their property by applying for a Treasurer’s deed through Sheaffer’s office. “We haven’t transferred title of a property since the 1980s, but it could happen,� Sheaffer said. The tax lien sale is the final step in ensuring taxing entities, such as the towns, school districts, fire protection districts and the county, receive their funding. In January, the Treasurer’s Office mailed property tax notices to 34,597 real property owners, 1,541 mobile home owners and 3,905 personal property accounts. Delinquent property tax notices went to 3,000 accounts the first week of July. A second notice went out the end of August to 2,000 delinquent property owners. Sheaffer’s staff made a round of calls to 1,400 property owners the first week of September. If they still didn’t pay, their properties went to last week’s tax lien sale. Now they have three years to pay up, or their property gets transferred to the investor. Only around 1 percent ever are, Sheaffer says.

Local school earns gold star RCHS hosts annual chili cook-off June Creek earns Energy Star rating, saves $25K June Creek Elementary School is a money-saving energy star. The new school in Edwards earned the Energy Star Award by using less energy and throwing off fewer greenhouse gas emissions than 86 percent of similar buildings around the nation. More importantly, the energy efficiency improvements saved taxpayers $25,000 in utility bills during the school’s first year. “It is so wonderful to work in a building that was so well designed,� said Tracy Barber, June Creek principal. “What a great way to teach our students about energy conservation.� The measures reduced natural gas use by 25 percent, and reduced school’s electric bill by 40 percent, compared to older schools. EPA’s national energy performance rating system is based on a 1-100 scale by which organizations can assess how efficiently their buildings use energy, compared to similar buildings nationwide. A building that scores a rating of 75 or higher is eligible for the Energy Star designation. June Creek opened in late August 2008 with a ribbon cutting, a cake cutting and a little budget cutting. The school was part of the school district’s $120 mil-

lion construction frenzy that included Red Canyon High School, a new Battle Mountain High School and a remodel for Eagle Valley High School. This is the third time the Eagle County School District has built a school from this design. Red Hill Elementary School in Gypsum and Brush Creek Elementary School in Eagle are the other two. Among the energy efficiency measures included in June Creek were: • Occupancy and ambient lighting sensors, • Space conditioning with individual fan coil units for heating, ventilation and cooling of spaces), • Volume air handling system with mechanical cooling, helping control fan speed and airflow to fourteen zones in various rooms, • Gymnasium and kitchen area radiant heating and CO2 control of ventilation, controlling outside air ventilation based on the CO2 levels in the space, • Condensed boilers and domestic hot water heating. It’s a combination of tankless electric and gas fired hot water heaters, providing hot water and reducing energy consumption by eliminating energy losses through the tank and distribution pipe.

As the weather cooled down this weekend, the Red Canyon High School annual chili cook-off was re-heated. Students and teachers raised money for the school at Saturday’s event, which had 31 chili pots lining the entrance of RCHS. “It’s a great way to support the school,â€? said Hart, a RCHS senior whose “Hartburnâ€? was among the entrants. “It feels like we’re one big family.â€? The winners of the green chili genre were Travis Baker and Nick Moore for their “Green Chilanâ€? and Matt Rysavy and Michael Gagon for their “Satan’s Ketchupâ€? Red Chili. “My mom helped us with the recipe, but we did it all,â€? said Rysavy, who used dried jalapeĂąos from his backyard to compliment the sauce. Each received their share of prize money gathered from each $10 a pot entry fee. There was also a silent auction, with gift certificates from, among others, Blue Plate Bistro of Avon, Mango’s Bar and Grill of Red Cliff and Pazzo’s Pizza. Rancho Del Rio donated inflatable kayaks and Kitchen Collage donated some unique kitchenware. The chili competition began five years ago to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina, said RCHS Principal Wade Hill.

“We thought it was such a great event for the school, we decided to keep it,� said Hill. “It’s been a really great turnout so far.� Admission to the event was $5, and the money raised from it will benefit RCHS’s Expeditionary Learning program, which takes students out of the classroom for some hands-on learning. “It’s all about teachers creating expeditions around a compelling curriculum which creates a need to know that‘s as authentic as possible to raise that engagement level among students,� said Hill. “We bring experts into the classroom, service learning and assign field work, if it fits you get out into the field and learn it.�

E-mail press releases to



on abortion coverage in insurance policies to be sold to many individuals and small groups. They prevailed on a roll call of 240-194. Ironically, that only solidified support for the legislation, clearing the way for conservative Democrats to vote for it. The legislation would require most Americans to carry insurance and provide federal subsidies to those who otherwise could not afford it. Large companies would have to offer coverage to their employees. Both consumers and companies would be slapped with penalties if they defied the government’s mandates. Insurance industry practices such as denying coverage on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions would be banned, and insurers would no longer be able to charge higher premiums on the basis of gender or medical history. In a further slap, the industry would lose its exemption from federal antitrust restrictions on price gouging, bid rigging and market allocation. A cheer went up from the Democratic side of the House when the bill gained 218 votes, a majority. Moments later, Democrats counted down the final seconds of the voting period in unison, and and let loose an even louder roar when Pelosi grabbed the gavel and declared, “the bill is passed.’

Texas shooting suspect had issues

As a student, some who knew Nidal Malik Hasan said they saw clear signs the young Army psychiatrist — who authorities say went on a shooting spree at Fort Hood that left 13 dead — had no place in the military. After arriving at Fort Hood, he was conflicted about what to tell fellow Muslim soldiers about the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, alarming an Islamic community leader from whom he sought counsel. “I told him, ‘There’s something wrong with you,’” Osman Danquah, co-founder of the Islamic Community of Greater Killeen, told The Associated Press on Saturday. “I didn’t get the feeling he was talking for himself, but something just didn’t seem right.” Both military and civilian investigators have yet to talk with Hasan, who reportedly jumped up on a desk and shouted “Allahu akbar!” — Arabic for “God is

great!” — at the start of Thursday’s attack.

Stimulus funds a road less travelled

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick’s administration plans to use $9 million in stimulus funds for a Foxborough footbridge connecting two parking lots that belong to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. The footbridge would cross Route 1 near Gillette Stadium and Kraft’s Patriot Place retail development. Kraft is tied for number 468 on Forbes Magazine’s list of the world’s billionaires. The Boston Globe reports that state officials bypassed various projects — including roadwork in Canton, Danvers, Braintree and Bellingham — in favor of the footbridge. Metropolitan Area Planning Council director Marc Draisen questioned if the footbridge was the best use of limited stimulus money. The Kraft Group, owner of the Patriots and Patriot Place, referred questions to state officials, who said the bridge is key to spurring economic development and jobs along Route 1.

Fido revival

Rev. Tom Eggebeen, interim pastor at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, has revived his fellowship by inviting dogs to attend a special service. Eggebeen turned God’s house into a doghouse by offering a 30-minute service complete with individual doggie beds, canine prayers and an offering of dog treats. He hopes it will reinvigorate the church’s connection with the community, provide solace to elderly members and, possibly, attract new worshippers who are as crazy about God as they are about their fourlegged friends. The weekly dog service at Covenant Presbyterian is part of a growing trend among churches nationwide to address the spirituality of pets and the deeply felt bonds that owners form with their animals. A growing number of congregations from Massachusetts to Texas to California are challenging the Christian assertion that only humans have redeemable souls with regular pet blessings and, increasingly, pet-centric services, said Hobgood-Oster, who studies the role of animals in Christian tradition.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Berlin Wall’s end game

Massive colorful dominoes painted by German students were placed Saturday along the former path of the Berlin Wall to mark the 20th anniversary of the opening of the barrier that divided the city for nearly three decades. Many of the upright 7.5-foot-high (2.3-meter-high) plastic foam dominoes carried messages, including “We are one people.” The approximately 1,000 dominoes stretching for 1.5 kilometers (1 mile) will be toppled Monday as part of wider celebrations of the wall’s fall. One labeled “bleeding heart” showed a sword cutting through the city of Berlin, starting a crimson flow of blood speckled with crosses. “Everyone has walls in their heads to a certain extent,” said Berlin resident Stefan Schueler as he perused the domino display. “It’s always a good thing if one can break them down, and I think this is a good symbol.”

Cage owes a national treasure

Actor Nicolas Cage owes $6.3 million in back taxes and is liquidating much of his vast real-estate empire, reports the Wall Street Journal Cage is suing his ex-manager Samuel J. Levin for $20 million, blaming him for mishandling his fortune. The actor, famous for roles in leaving Las Vegas and

“National Treasure,” has put several of his luxury properties on the market and two of his New Orleans properties are being foreclosed. Friends of Cage weren’t surprised by his financial woes, telling the The Daily Beast the star “lived like a sheik,” and “spent money like it was water.” Cage’s treasure trove of wealth includes more than a dozen houses, two Bahamian islands, dinosaur skulls, shrunken heads and the shah of Iran’s Lamborghini, the Beast reports.

Woods sues hometown hospital

Two-time Oscar-nominated actor James Woods has sued a Rhode Island hospital over the 2006 death of his younger brother. Woods on Friday would not discuss the lawsuit in detail, but told The Associated Press he wants “justice” for his brother, Michael, who was 49 when he died at Kent Hospital in his hometown of Warwick of what was believed to be a heart attack. Woods, who is the executor of his brother’s estate, claims his brother received negligent medical care. A spokesperson for the hospital did not return an e-mail seeking comment Friday. It was not immediately clear how much money or other damages Woods is seeking through the lawsuit. Opening statements are scheduled for Monday in Kent County Superior Court.

Reports of demise greatly exaggerated

A Brazilian bricklayer reportedly killed in a car crash shocked his mourning family by showing up alive at his funeral. Relatives of Ademir Jorge Goncalves, 59, had identified him as the victim of a Sunday night car crash in Parana state in southern Brazil, police said. As is customary in Brazil, the funeral was held the following day, which happened to be the holiday of Finados, when Brazilians visit cemeteries to honor the dead. What family members didn’t know was that Goncalves had spent the night at a truck stop talking with friends over drinks of a sugarcane liquor known as cachaca, his niece Rosa Sampaio told the O Globo newspaper. He did not get word about his own funeral until it was already happening Monday morning. A police spokesman in the town of Santo Antonio da Platina said Goncalves rushed to the funeral to let family members know he was not dead. “The corpse was badly disfigured, but dressed in similar clothing,” said the police spokesman, who talked on condition of anonymity as he wasn’t authorized to discuss the case. “People are afraid to look for very long when they identify bodies, and I think that is what happened in this case.” —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Nugs opening hot streak officially over

Phil Mickelson went from a two-shot deficit against Tiger Woods to a two-shot lead over the final eight holes Saturday in the HSBC Champions. A rivalry that was renewed six weeks ago in Atlanta continued halfway around world in China when Woods stalled with pars and Mickelson poured in three birdies over his last five holes for a 5-under 67 and a twoshot lead over Woods and Nick Watney in the final World Golf Championship of the year. “I know we are both looking forward to it,” said Mickelson, who was at 14-under 202. “I think it will be a fun day, and we are excited to be playing in the last group here in China.” It will be the first time the world’s top two players have been in the final group since their Duel at Doral in 2005, when Woods rallied from a two-shot deficit in the final round to win by one.

Avs match franchise record

Chris Stewart’s score in the eighth round of a shootout against the Chicago Blackhawks Friday helped the Avalanche match a franchise record for consecutive wins at home to start a season. The Avs are 6-0 in the Pepsi Center with 11 wins and 3 losses for the season. The team heads to Edmonton to face the Oilers on Sunday. 

Zenyatta wins Breeders’ Cup Classic

Zenyatta won $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic Saturday, running her record to 14-0 in a race delayed briefly when Quality Road bucked violently in the starting gate. Zenyatta rallied from last in the early going and fought off Gio Ponti in the stretch to win by a length Saturday at Santa Anita, beating a loaded field of 11 males.

Ridden by Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, the 5-year-old mare ran 1 mile in 2:00.62. Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird was fourth and Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird was ninth, extending his losing streak to five straight since his 50-1 upset on the first Saturday in May. Irish import Rip Van Winkle was 10th.

BEAVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; GETS LOCKER SERVICE -------------------------------------------

cup of brilliant ideas. Schelde says it came to him when he was walking through Vail Village, wondering from where he should rent a locker, and also thinking about what he was going to do with his property at Beaver Creek, which was rendered useless in a bad economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marketing dollars have completely evaporated,â&#x20AC;? says Schelde, whose successful Beaver Creek based sports marketing firm once worked with big guns like Charles Schwab, and can claim bragging rights to some revolutionary revamps in the sporting world like the idea to change the name of the Senior PGA Tour to the Champions Tour. This year, Scheldeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gravity Television & Sports Marketing was another causality of the tough times, and he found himself one of only 16 private owners of primo commercial property at Beaver Creek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to sell in this great recession,â&#x20AC;? says Schelde. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to keep the place to give to my sixyear-old daughter one day.â&#x20AC;? Dealing with Fortune 500 Companies and other heavies, Scheldeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clientele was not local. But the Minnesota native has a deep connection with the local crowd, moving here modestly in 1984 to teach skiing and play hockey for the Vail Mountaineers, the local hockey squad that used to pack the seats at Dobson, attracting fans who came to watch Schelde, along with Paul Cartmill, T. Fox and other D1 college stars who never went pro. The reason Schelde decided to operate his business out of Beaver Creek was so he could take a break from the office during the day to get in a few runs. This year, as business dried up, he had made the decision to ski Vail instead, and was touring the local locker shops when the new business idea hit him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I needed a ski locker, and I had a property at Beaver Creek that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do with,â&#x20AC;? says Schelde. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had the chocolate and the peanut butter all along.â&#x20AC;? Schelde says he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember any time Beaver Creek has had good, public use lockers available to their skiers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe, for all these years, people have been hauling their skis on and off the shuttle and carrying them back to their cars,â&#x20AC;? he says. The parking tab he was going to run up this year skiing Vail over the Beavâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sitting well with Schelde either. So he decided to stick with Beaver Creek and turn what had always been an office/ski locker for him to into 116 four-person ski lockers that could be used by locals. Now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staring down the barrel of a $150,000 investment, which he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more excited about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a great club for locals,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that will always be there for themâ&#x20AC;?

Wanting to stay as local as possible throughout the project, Schelde selected Genesis Innovations, which has an office in Edwards, to build the lockers. Genesis is setting up an innovative locker drying system in each locker, and the 95â&#x20AC;? high, 18â&#x20AC;? wide and 26â&#x20AC;? deep compartments will be able to have eight individual boot dryers and can fit four sets skis and/or snowboards, four sets of ski poles, four helmets and goggles, four jackets and pants, and four sets of gloves. The lockers will go for $399 per person for the whole year, which Schelde says is cheaper than anything he found in his recent adventure as a potential Vail ski locker consumer. Hikers and mountain bikers can use the space to store their gear in the summer months, as well. All lockers will be accessible 24 hours per day through a key card system, says Schelde. For more information check out Shelde says the lockers will be first come, first served, so get in now to ensure yourself a renewal option for the future and get early dibs on your location.

LET THE GOVERNMENT RUN THE GROWING ----------------than 13,000 medical marijuana card holders. Hundreds more each week plunk down $275 or more to buy the card. At that rate, White says, in the relatively near future Colorado could have as many as 100,000 card holders. To keep the math simple, he figures that if medical marijuana sells for $100 an ounce. Of that, 25 percent would roll into the state coffers to cover the cost of agriculture and administration. Multiply by 13,000 and the state collects $160 million in the first year. “No other state has anything like it,” White says. In Utah, one of the most conservaWHITE tive conglomerations of human beings in this spiral arm of the universe, the state government controls the sale of alcohol. Inspiration point Al White was driving from the state capitol back toward the real world and his district, which includes Eagle County, when the Republican state senator had an epiphany. Let marijuana pay. White is a member of the state legislature’s Joint Budget Committee, so he spends an inordinate amount of time looking for money. He spotted a reefer retailer and saw green. Let the state of Colorado grow the product, then sell it through licensed pharmacies, White says. It eliminates the conundrum of where reefer can be retailed by unlicensed dispensaries. “This situation has been brewing and ripening for years,” White says. “The citizens passed Amendment 20 in 2000 and the state has done nothing about it. We have cities and counties invoking their own rules, imposing moratoriums, thinking the state would step in, and it’s time for the state to step in.” Medical marijuana would be grown and sold by upstanding professional pharmacists like the fairly incorruptible pharmacists at Columbine Market in Gypsum. The same people who sell you penicillin would sell you prescription pot.

[From page 1]

The state agencies control the supply and the consistency becomes more consistent. “If the state gets into supply, we can ensure that the supply is adequate and the potency is consistent,” White said. Nixing narco-terrorists Right now, if reefer retailers run low on their homegrown supply, they go where they’ve always gone – to the black market, White says. “If I’m a dispensary and I’m low on product, I’m going to go to the black market,” White said. “That puts Colorado residents in the position of tacitly supporting narcoterrorists from Mexico and South America.” Reefer retailers could be a little out of sorts over the bill, because it takes a dim view of them growing ditch weed or selling oregano. They’d just have to hire a licensed pharmacists or earn their own accreditation, White says. “I’m not trying to put these dispensaries out of business, we’re just raising the point of entry,” he said. It also levels out the skyrocketing prices. While you people like you and Al have been keeping a closer eye on the rising price of gasoline, marijuana prices at regional reefer retailers has been following the same trajectory, getting higher. Marijuana is now a commodity governed by few laws beyond supply and demand. Since reefer retailers have started popping up like the buds they sell, marijuana prices have jumped 300 percent. “One of my constituents said in the dispensaries, marijuana sells for $450-$650 per ounce,” White said. A.G. angry The state Attorney General’s office is a little upset with White because its legal eagles really don’t like it when state lawmakers make state laws that don’t agree with federal law. It’s still a federal crime to grow, sell and buy marijuana. White counters that President Obama ordered the DEA not to enforce that federal law at the dispensaries. In other words, Obama ordered federal agents to stop sending the storm troopers into reefer retail shops. Sounds like the right time for the Rocky Mountain High program to stroll right in, White says.

Unlike local graffiti artists, this one can spell PALM BAY, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Police in Florida say a graffiti artist who apparently ran out of paint midway through a spray-painted creation left a note to potential critics to explain the unfinished work. Palm Bay police Officer Dan Fisher says the artist painted the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;ran out of purpleâ&#x20AC;? on the white concrete wall. The note was next to an incomplete bright purple piece that read â&#x20AC;&#x153;Solo.â&#x20AC;? Fisher says the artist would likely face a criminal mischief charge if he or she is apprehended. The damage was estimated at about $200.

believe when you hear gun shots that’s what it is because it sounds like someone is stepping on packaging material. Robbins shifted his stance and shook his head as he recounted what happened next. “I saw someone being dragged by police from the bar and it didn’t look like he was moving,” he said. “The store is open until midnight so I see a lot of arguments and drama, you can see a lot of these situations could escalate to something more, but these are just kids. This was, you know, a Vietnam veteran who loved his guns, this was obviously a single dispute, not some random act.” Police officials said they responded to a 911 call from the Sandbar at 7:28 p.m.. “When officers arrived they were confronted with a large number of people

coming out of the bar,“ said Henninger. “It was fairly chaotic.” Police met three of the shooting victims as they ran outside the bar, and found the fourth, a male from Carbondale, dead inside the establishment. The three wounded - all men who live in Vail - were taken to Vail Valley Medical Center. Two were in surgery at press time, one had already been released. The wounded are aged 29, 25 and 63, Henninger said. “This is a very safe community and came as a shocker,” said Henninger. “We are happy we have a suspect in custody, but we’re very sorry for the families. We offer our condolences to the families.” The Colorado Investigations Bureau is assisting in the case. Witnesses who have not already spoken with police are encouraged to call 970-479-2201.
