‘Bob goes fishin’ to kick weekend of Thanksgiving entertainment

A brighter economic forecast from the Federal Reserve helped the stock market pare steep losses that followed uninspiring reports on consumer sentiment and housing. Stocks slipped from 13-month highs in light trading Tuesday as gains in health care companies helped offset drops in financial and industrial stocks. The Federal Reserve’s pledge to keep rates low for the foreseeable future helped afternoon trading. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 17.24, or 0.2 percent, to 10,433.71. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 0.59, or 0.1 percent, to 1,105.65. The Nasdaq composite index fell 6.83, or 0.3 percent, to 2,169.18.

We could say that Da Man stepped on your green thumb again yesterday, but one of Da Man is a woman. County commissioners Sara Fisher and Jon Stavney made their temporary their reefer regs a little less temporary at yesterday’s weekly meeting. You cannot, legally, grow pot in Eagle County unless you’re a licensed caregiver or card-carrying patient with a chronic medical condition that can be alleviated by medical marijuana. You cannot legally grow pot unless you’re a licensed caregiver or a patient. It remains the law and will for the foreseeable future. Under the county’s temporary regs, which, after yesterday are less temporary, Da Man said that between you and your caregiver, your horticultural prowess cannot be applied to more than three mature pot plants and three others to which you are applying the nurturing nature of your green thumb. That’s three mature and three growing, no more, if you want to adhere to the legalities being made more legal by the day. And we know that you do because every reefer retailer on God’s green earth wants nothing more than to “help people,” and possibly achieve world peace. It has nothing to do with legally retailing reefer for $440 an ounce, they say. In the next six months, county officials hope to roll up their final reefer regs, and hopefully get some help from the state legislature. State Sen. Al White says he’ll introduce a bill that would put the state government in charge of growing and distributing medical marijuana. Al says it will ensure consistent quality and supply, alleviating your chronic case of “Down To The Seeds and Stems Again Blues.” “Between the legislature and the court of appeals,

you’re going to see some bookends around medical marijuana,” said Bryan Treu, Eagle County attorney. Because Eagle County is so far ahead of everyone else in rolling up reefer regs, Treu has been asked to talk to Colorado Counties, Inc. about how they did it. Stavney gave him some kudos for being out front on this issue. Treu promised not to use the terms, “Dude” and “Wow,” in his CCI address.

Expect more hitchhikers near Minturn this season Business owners weigh in on ECO bus service cuts By Dawn Witlin The Town of Minturn has seen some serious cuts to its ECO bus routes this winter, which has business owners worried for their busy season revenue and employee transportation. Last winter, ECO ran 12 routes from Minturn to Avon and back with the last bus dropping off passengers at Lucero’s Standard at 10:44 p.m. 10 ECO routes ran to and from the town to Vail, with the last bus dropping off passengers at 11:42 p.m. The cost to ride ECO bus last season was $3. Beginning last Monday, you’ll only be able to catch one ECO bus to and from Avon, while two Vail buses will pick up passengers in the morning and return in the evening for a fare price of $4. “They raised the rates and then cut the routes, which I think is a double slap to Minturn, I think Minturn has to find some other way to supplement their routes,” said Mark Tamborino, owner of Kirby Cosmo’s BBQ bar and regular Minturn Miler. “It used to be such a great thing, I would take the bus in the morning to Vail, ski a few runs, catch the (Minturn) mile back and I could open the restaurant by 11:30 a.m. It was great value for $3 and I didn’t have to pay for parking in Vail.” The Minturn Milers, customers who take the bus into Avon or Vail and ski the mile into town, are an important source of revenue for the local businesses. “Milers are huge for the town because they’re coming with revenue into Minturn and they’re looking to get back to their place, they’re going to come in and spend revenue and pay sales tax and then they’ll pay the $4 to get home,” said Tamborino. The last bus to Avon from the Forest Service stop is 5:07 p.m., while the last bus leaving Minturn for Vail is 5:57 p.m. Al Brown, owner of Chili Willy’s is also worried about the loss in Minturn Milers, along with his employees getting home safely at night. “I don’t agree with the cut backs, it’s really going to hurt our employees, I’m worried about our employees more than anything else, the people getting to work from Vail,” he said. Tamborino said two of his employees have found it impossible to get to work in Minturn from Avon, so he picks them up every day. “Minturn is the work force of the Valley because you can find affordable housing here and take the bus into Vail or Avon and go to work,” he said. “I know people

that work the snow plows in Vail and they’ve had to buy cars this year because they can’t get to work,” he said. “That’s one more car footprint on the environment and it’s more money out of their pockets for gas.” Andy Kaufman, owner of the Minturn Saloon, also sees the need for more transportation to and from Minturn. “From what I’ve heard Minturn, has the highest capita ridership, but we’re a small town so the numbers aren’t as high,” he said, guessing skiers will rely on alternate means to use the mile. “For years skiers have done a number of things to get to and from Minturn, they’ve used the bus, hitchhiked, or have taken taxis and I imagine that will happen again.” Heather Schultz, owner of Holy Toledo, said she understands the cutbacks in service. Its a bummer, but it’s probably based on the economy and I can understand it,” she said. “It sounds like it’s a lot like the airline industry, there are less flights, but they’re filling them up and I understand it, it’s a sign of the times.” Jeff Wetzel, operations manager for ECO Transit said the Minturn cuts were made based on the number of passengers at certain times of the day. “Money generated was a little bit of a factor, but when we sat down last summer to discuss cutting service, Minturn was the worst generator of passengers,” he said. “The cost per passenger was the highest than any other routes…and after 5 p.m. the number of passengers kept gong down, it was pretty much dead after 6 p.m.” The town is looking to establish a transportation committee to solve its lack of ECO bus routes this year, which will be up for discussion at the next council meeting on Dec. 2. Matt Sherr, who represents the town on the ECO board, said the committee will work towards exploring the needs of the community, the transportation challenges and the various solutions. “A lot of people were coming to me and saying ‘You’ve got to do something about this,’” said Scherr. “There are a lot of things sound government can do about this … it’s not just the idea of getting around, it’s our quality of life, people aren’t going to live here if they cant get on a bicycle and go ski or get on a bus and go to work in Vail.” If you’d like to join the committee, have questions or some ideas n how to solve the transportation issue in Minturn, call Town Planner Jim White at 827-5645.

When the US Olympic Ski And Snowboard Team calls for your services, you answer. It’s your patriotic duty. Dr. James Harding of the Vail Valley Center for Aesthetic Dentistry received that call last week when Richard Quincy, US Ski Team Medical Director, contacted him about becoming an official medical provider for the team. With that call to service, Dr. Harding becomes the first official dental provider to the US Ski And Snowboard Team. In his role as an official dental provider, Dr. Harding will provide services to all A and B Team athletes on the US Alpine, Snowboard, Nordic as well as the US Ski and Snowboard Cross Teams. Dr. Harding had been in informal talks with the executive team at the US Ski and Snowboard Association for a number of years and, with so much early activity taking place now in Colorado in advance of this year’s World Cup and Europa Cup Tours, as well as the Vancouver Olympics, he was approached again this fall about the position. Anyone being considered for designation of ‘official medial provider’ must pass an extremely high level of review in order to meet the qualifications of USSA medical team.

Dr. Harding is currently working on important research to determine if the new field of “Performance Mouthguards� will help the US Ski Team gain even a 2 percent advantage over the competition. “You never know if that small advantage could be the difference between a gold and a silver medal this winter in the Olympics for someone like Lindsay Vonn, Ted Ligety or Julia Mancuso. These world-class athletes compete in a sport where a few hundredths of a second could be the difference between a gold medal and no medal at all!� Dr. Harding, who has worked with many other athletes over the years, is excited about his new role with the USSA. “Professionally, it’s an incredible honor to have earned the

trust of the US Ski Team to take care of our nation’s Olympic athletes. The USSA wants to have the best for their athletes and to be considered, let alone chosen as a medical provider, is a wonderful validation.� Harding adds, “Personally, as a huge ski and snowboard fan and former college ski racer, I’m thrilled to be a part of the team and to have an opportunity to contribute to their health and continued success.� To date, Dr. Harding has already provided dental services to several team members and anticipates seeing most if not all of them in the near future, as the teams settles in locally here in Vail for more training leading up to the heart of the World-Cup season and the Winter Olympics. And, if the call should come to go to Vancouver? Well, it’s a patriotic duty to answer the call. Dr. James Harding practices general and comprehensive restorative dentistry at the Vail Valley Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, in Avon. He is a preferred medical provider for the US Ski and Snowboard Team, is on the teaching staff at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies is the Past-President of the IACA and a member of The Academy for Sports Dentistry.

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer You take a look at how well Glenda Wentworth’s kids turned out, and you trust her with yours. Wentworth has been with the local CSU Cooperative Extension for more than a decade, and it’s no wonder she has been honored with the Distinguished Service Award by the National Association for Family and Consumer Sciences. “She’s a leader, a team player and dedicated to strengthening her community,� said County Commissioner Sara Fisher in presenting the award yesterday. “Glenda’s commitment to meeting the needs of individuals, families and communities is exemplary.� Calm amid the storm Watching Glenda is like studying a swan. Calm composure for the public view, but underneath pushing just hard enough to make sure it all gets accomplished on time. For each of the past 11 years you’d find her in the exhibition hall during the Eagle County Fairs and Rodeo, making sure hundreds of kids have everything where it’s supposed to be. She came to the CSU Extension from 15 years in early childhood education and development, nine years at ABC School and six years launching and running the child care programs at Trinity Church. She has been with CSU Extension for 11 years. She has directed much of her work toward low income families, concentrating on things like basic money management and health, nutrition and wellness. There was the program on dental nutrition to Eagle County School District Head Start/Colorado Preschool program. Of the dozens of parents who attended, 97 percent were Latinos. She put together the “Family Matters and Parenting the First Year� newsletters in both English and Spanish. Their circulation numbers topped most regional publications. She has taught kids to cook, to clean up after themselves, to take care of their money, to take care of themselves and to take care of each other. If the babysitter to whom you entrusted your beloved offspring turned out to be trustworthy, responsible and didn’t let your kids stay up until 3 a.m. drinking Red Bull and driving your motorcycle around the golf course – which is to say that if your babysitter was properly trained, chances are the kid was a proud graduate of Wentworth’s Babysitter Basics class. More than 500 have completed the course since Wentworth started it in 1998.

Wentworth took direct aim at addressing the needs of local Hispanic youth by bringing together CSU Extension, the Eagle River Youth Coalition and the Youth Foundation. The partnership focuses on nutrition, fitness and positive body image education and support for Hispanic middle school students in the county. Through this partnership, the after-school program successfully reached 308 youth. Of the total sixth grade participants, 89 percents were Hispanic, and of the total seventh grade participants, 97 percent were Hispanic. Then there’s the Mypyramid program, teaching preschool through high school students to pay more attention to what they eat, and not just glance at it as they yank it out of the bag at the drive-thru window. More than 2,000 students have been though that program. Wentworth’s nutrition education program targeting low income families has graduated 196 adult participants and 306 youth participants. After they finished, they reported not only eating better, but spending $93 less per month on food. And while you’re taking care of yourself and others, you might as well learn to take care of your money. Wentworth helps run the program series “Take the Road to Financial Security,� designed to improve your later life financial security. Before you get to later life, you need to learn to take her class on basic financial knowledge and skills, where you’ll learn to set financial goals, develop a personal spending plan, and create a plan for keeping important papers.

Last Call offers help before it’s too late Local group provides help with substance abuse problems Last Call

Case management for people seeking help with substance abuse problems. They also facilitate clients’ entrance into treatment facilities and negotiate with insurance companies. 328-5590, or go to www.lastcalleagle.org By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Mark and Amy Wilhelm answered Last Call’s call. The local couple donated $10,000 to keep Last Call operating in Eagle County. Last Call is a case management/transport program addresses the issues of serious substance abuse with an appropriate and immediate community response. The program finds support through appropriate treatment programs, agencies and a 12-step volunteer support group. Last Call is a case management program for substance abusers, providing case management for people seeking help with substance abuse problems. The Last Call program steps in when law enforcement gets involved, to keep intoxicated people out of the “drunk tank.” Before Last Call, intoxicated people were held in jail whether or not they had committed a crime. Last Call staffers and volunteers transport them to a detoxification facility in a neighboring county, or to a sober person. The program then provides follow-up case management. That frees up local law enforcement for emergencies and community protection. “The most important part of dealing with a loved one who is experiencing a drug or alcohol problem is getting them in the door for help,” the Wilhelms said in a written statement. “Emergency transportation is vital in the process of breaking down the individual and their pattern of denial. Placing the person in a detox or drug and alcohol rehabilitation center is the most important first step.”

Last Call was established in 2007. So far this year, 144 people have been referred to the program. Of Last Call’s clients, 81 percent live in Eagle County, 12 percent in other Colorado counties, and 7 percent out of state. “Without transportation and follow up, most of these individuals would not seek help and would continue their unmanageable lives,” said the Wilhelms. Besides upsetting lives and families, substance abuse also carries hard costs: time off work, repeated legal involvements, auto accidents and domestic violence are among the social issues. Drug and alcohol usage is the third leading cause of injury and death in Eagle County. Alcohol consumption is responsible for 42 percent of car crashes leading to death. According to Healthy Eagle County 2010, 23 percent of residents report substance abuse issues in their home, and 41 percent reportedly do not know where to access substance abuse services. Also, one in five residents have no health insurance and need to rely on public mental health services. Among the county’s Latino population, 68 percent have no health insurance, according to the county’s health department. For people with legal problems, Last Call may also provide advocacy in the court system. Last Call was initiated as a pilot program in Sept. 2007. It is funded by donations and grants, including contributions from the county, all of the towns, and other community partners.

VVMC sterile processing department receives highest standards in field Director Randy Hillman and staff exceed governmental mandates Randy Hillman, Vail Valley Medical Center’s Director of Sterile Processing, attended a Denver Area Operating Room and Nursing Room Association conference earlier this month and returned with a prestigious award in his field. Hillman and his department at VVMC received an award from 3M, providers of world-class innovative products and services, for providing the highest level of care possible in sterile processing. Of the more than 100 Colorado hospitals represented, VVMC was one of only three to receive the award. “We were elated,� said Hillman. “We have taken measures to ensure safety far above those required of us by law; to be recognized for it in the presence of our peers was a real treat.� Since Hillman came to VVMC as Director of Sterile Processing in October of 2008, he and those who work in his department have redefined the standards of sterilization at VVMC. Each of the 13 employees in the department, including Hillman who is certified by The International Association of Healthcare Central Services & Material Management, is certified by a professional school or teacher in sterile processing. “This is not the norm,� said Hillman. “I’ve been a consultant in sterile processing for more than 30 years and VVMC is one of a very few hospitals that I’ve worked in where the entire sterile processing department is certified.

Each person working in our department knows why they do everything that they do, the nuances of the trade and how to complete each process thoroughly. It’s a huge differentiator for us and increases overall patient safety.� As an example of VVMC’s dedication to sterile processing, governmental mandates require that each machine used in sterilization must be tested by the department once a week. VVMC’s team tests each machine each time that it is used to be sure that there is never a load of equipment that is not properly sterilized. “When I arrived, VVMC was already committed to setting a high standard for infection prevention,� said Hillman. “Nurse Epidemiologist Heather Gilmartin and Susan Brozovich, Associate Chief of Perioperative Services, were already raising the bar in their fields. I conducted a risk and needs assessment for sterilization and one year later have completed nearly the entire list. We work under the mantra that one infection is one too many.� “Sterile processing is the backbone of any surgical hospital and we are fortunate to have such a talented team at VVMC,� said Heather Gilmartin. “Our sterile processing department is one of the most systematic departments at the hospital with multiple safety checks incorporated into the sterilization activities.�

News from around the state DIA prepares for 2nd busiest Thanksgiving in airport history

More people seem to be heading home for the holidays this year in Colorado. Denver International Airport says it expects more fliers to pass through the airport this week than during Thanksgiving week last year. The airport predicts more than 960,000 passengers between now and Monday. If the prediction comes true, this would the secondbusiest Thanksgiving week in airport history. In 2006 DIA saw more than 966,000 fliers. Sunday will again be the busiest day or the travel period. On that day, DIA officials expect more than 160,000 travelers.

Xcel abandons plans to charge Colo. ratepayers for games, vacations

Denver to leave holiday lights up all year

Denver’s holiday lights are getting cheaper for city taxpayers. That’s because Denver won’t be taking them down when the holidays are over. City officials say they’ve installed permanent highefficiency LED light panels on city buildings that are lit up for the holidays. The city says it will save $180,000 a year by not having to put the lights up each fall and then take them down after the holidays. The switch to 2,000 feet of rope LED lights cost the city $275,000. The Wal-Mart Foundation donated an additional $50,000. The panels will stay up all year but will only be on for the holidays. Governments across the country are switching to low-energy lights. The White House Christmas tree in Washington started using LED lights last year.

Colo. to get $42 million from Asarco bankruptcy

Xcel Energy has abandoned plans to have Colorado ratepayers pay for expensive dinners and luxury hotel stays for its employees. The Minneapolis-based utility has agreed to remove $280,000 in charges meant to cover expenses and perks like Colorado Avalanche tickets. They had been included in its pending $136 million electricity rate increase. The expenses came to light in September after the Minnesota attorney general questioned similar spending attached to a proposed rate request there. Lawyers for Colorado’s Public Utilities Commission asked for a breakdown of such expenses in Xcel’s rate request. Among the items was $45,000 for a one-week trip to Europe for two executives attending investor meetings. The company had planned to charge Colorado ratepayers for $10,361 of that.

Mining sites in Colorado will receive $42 million for environmental cleanup projects as part of the bankruptcy organization plan for copper mining company Asarco LLC. The Colorado attorney general’s office said Tuesday that Colorado’s share is part of a settlement that involves 19 states and more than 50 remediation sites. Asarco filed bankruptcy in Texas in 2005. The federal government and 16 states then began settlement negotiations on various environmental claims. The attorney general’s office says $16 million will go to clean up a former 89-acre smelting and refining site in north Denver, $4 million will go to former mining sites near Silverton, and $22 million will go to sites that include the California Gulch Superfund site and the Terrible Mine in Custer County.

Colo promoting free breakfasts for kids

Group sues for protection of Colo. River trout

Most kids in Colorado who could be getting free breakfasts and summer lunches aren’t getting the meals, and state officials are working to change that. Gov. Bill Ritter joined hunger activists Tuesday to promote the state’s free breakfast and summer lunches for kids in need. Activists say that only about 37 percent of Colorado kids getting free or reduced-price lunches, or 75,000, also get free breakfasts or summer lunches. That’s because many schools don’t offer them, or the kids don’t want the stigma of receiving the meal assistance. Colorado officials say they plan to promote the free breakfast and summer lunch program to increase participation. States are reimbursed for the meals through the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

An Oregon-based environmental group is suing to gain federal protection for the Colorado River cutthroat trout, found in Colorado, Wyoming and Utah. The federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in Washington, D.C., by the Center for Biological Diversity challenges a 2007 decision that kept the fish off the endangered species list. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decision said there was evidence of an increased number of populations of the fish. But Noah Greenwald of the Portland-based Center for Biological Diversity says the trout is gone from 87 percent of its historic range, which included parts of Arizona and New Mexico. He says the decision by the Bush administration conflicts with the Endangered Species Act.

Late night snowboarding? Snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler to appear on Conan tonight By Dean Blazier Special to the Mountaineer Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White made their rounds at The Tonight Show with Conan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brian earlier this month and now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler to see what all the hype is about. Bleilerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit with Conan will be a short stop as she is heading to Copper Mountain to train for the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix with U.S. Snowboard Teammate (and Dancing with the Stars contestant) Louie Vito. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am super excited to be going on the Conan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien show.

of college scholarships By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

Skiers have a better chance of college scholarships than almost any other sport. “It makes sense, when you consider the number of athletes who start out in a sport, and the number scholarships available,” said Aldo Radamus of Ski and Snowboard Club Vail. Each year, about 4 million boys and 3 million girls play high school sports. Hundreds of thousands play football and about 4 percent of those, 23,157, earn college football scholarships in the entire NCAA. For every Parke Robbins, a standout Battle Mountain senior weighing possible football options, most others call it a career when they finish their final high school season. Preparation and opportunity Success lands on athletes who live and work at the intersection of preparation and opportunity. Kids can play basketball, football, baseball and soccer anywhere in this spiral arm of the universe – and do. “Millions soccer players and basketball players begin as children,” Radamus said. “By the time they’re in high school, there are 12 boys and 12 girls still competing interscholastically.” About 25,000 kids start out in competitive skiing most years, Radamus said. “If you are an athlete and have dreams of playing college basketball and other sports, your chances are small compared to one of the snow sports,” Radamus said. “We get to grow up here and ski on these mountains.” Most athletes tend to play up to their competition, and local snow sports are played at a national and international level. “In the snow sports, the level of competition doesn’t get any higher,” Radamus said. Neither do the facilities. Ski Club Vail just poured $3 million into snowmaking on Golden Peak, to improve opportunities for local athletes. Sasha Gros, for example, is talented athlete, but not extremely gifted, Radamus said. Yet she’s among the top World Cup racers. As a child, Sarah Schleper used to sleep under the tuning bench in her father Buzz Schleper’s shop. Legend has it that by the time she was 3 years old, she was ripping up the mountain by herself.

Vail native and US Ski Team developmental squad member Hunter Schleper.

Her brother Hunter Schleper, was raised the same way and is now a member of the U.S. Ski Team. And of course, there’s Vail Ski and Snowboard Club alumni Lindsey Vonn. She is working hard to become a household name with the upcoming Winter Olympics. They didn’t reach that level just by being extraordinarily gifted, but by having the right work ethic and being in right environment, Radamus said. Even if someone has the right genes but is competing somewhere that doesn’t provide the opportunity, the odds are long. Most NCAA college swimming programs offer 9.9 scholarships. There are no high school swimming programs in Eagle County, so if your kid is a swimmer, add to the training regimen the time of expense of commuting. “If you want to be a great tennis player, you need to be in Florida or California,” Radamus said. “If you want to compete in the snow sports, you must understand that we live in one of the best ski resort communities in the world.” No guarantees But just because you strap on a pair of skis doesn’t mean a college coach wants you or needs you, said Richard Roko, University of Colorado ski coach. “It’s not that any high school skier can make it,” Roko said. “They have to be driven and they must have the right skills.” It varies from college to college and coach to coach. Some are concentrating much more on international athletes. The Czech Republic has been popular lately. But for Roko, there’s nothing like home grown talent. If he has the equivalent of a scholarship, he’ll likely split it between a few athletes, he said. If they’re from Colorado, it might be enough to cover most of their college costs. And while athletic skills matter, before they’ll even talk to an athlete every college coach in every sport on earth asks the same two questions: “Do they get good grades?” and “Are they a good citizen?” “Everyone in college comes from high school. In order to be eligible for college competition, they have to meet the college admission standards,” Roko said.

THE UPDATE

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

investors who struggled to sell them after the market for them froze. State regulators said the agreement announced Tuesday is part of a multistate settlement in which Credit Suisse agreed to buy back or resolve more than $3.5 billion of auction rate securities from customers. It settles claims by regulators who alleged customers werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always told the risks of those investments, whose interest rates are reset at regular auctions, sometimes as often as weekly. Regulators allege many firms marketed them as safe, cash-like investments, but when the market froze in 2008, investors found they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t readily be sold for cash.

House seat undisputed . . . again

The Conservative Party candidate conceded a race in upstate New York for a U.S. House of Representatives seat for the second time Tuesday, saying he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough votes. Last week, Doug Hoffman withdrew his election night concession to Democratic Rep. Bill Owens, saying the race was close enough that absentee ballots could change the outcome. Now Hoffman says he has no hope of winning. The final ballot count hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been tallied and certified, but Owens was leading Hoffman Tuesday by about 3,000 votes out of more than 136,000 cast. Owens was sworn in Nov. 6.

Hoffman sent a letter to supporters last week seeking money for a legal challenge of the outcome. The Federal Election Commission said recount funds are legal, but the contributions would have to meet campaign finance limits, and if the money isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used for a recount it would have to be refunded. A spokesman for Hoffman said the campaign didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whether it had received any funds or would be returning any money.

miles on a charge. The car is slated to go into production by late 2011 with a base price of $57,400, although a federal tax credit for battery-powered cars will bring the cost to less than $50,000. Tesla said close to 2,000 people have paid a refundable $5,000 fee to reserve one of the vehicles.

Green luxury car factory to set up in California

China executed a dairy farmer and a milk salesman for their roles in the sale of contaminated baby formula â&#x20AC;&#x201D; severe punishments that Beijing hopes will assuage public anger, reassure importers and put to rest one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst food safety crises. The two men executed Tuesday were the only people put to death in a scheme to boost profits by lacing milk powder with the industrial chemical melamine; 19 other people were convicted and received lesser sentences. At least six children died after drinking the adulterated formula, and more than 300,000 were sickened. The milk powder contamination struck a nerve with the public because so many children were affected, but was only one in a series of product recalls and embarrassing disclosures of lax public health safeguards. Melamine, which is used to make plastics and fertilizers, has also been found added to pet food, eggs and fish feed, although not in levels considered dangerous to humans. The chemical, which like protein is high in nitrogen, fooled inspectors. It can cause kidney stones and kidney failure.

Tesla Motors is close to a deal to build an electric car factory at the site of a former NASA manufacturing plant in this blue-collar city south of Los Angeles, Mayor Mario Guerra said Tuesday. Guerra said he has called an emergency City Council meeting to approve a memorandum of understanding with Industrial Realty Group, the private owners of the complex. If approved Wednesday, the memorandum could facilitate a lease agreement with the automaker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited by the possibility of Tesla coming here,â&#x20AC;? Guerra said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel this could become the greenest manufacturing plant in North America.â&#x20AC;? San Carlos-based Tesla, which makes the $109,000 Roadster electric sports car, has been looking for a factory to build its next-generation Model S sedan. The company in June was approved for $465 million in loans from the U.S. Department of Energy to help build the Model S, which could travel as far as 300

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------‘Sorry, but I’m poor’

Someone made off with loot from a Georgia church but also left behind an apology. A note scrawled on the wall said: “Sorry but I’m poor. Forgive me Lord.” The Rev. Roger Davis tells WSB-TV that expensive equipment including microphones and a laptop containing important records were stolen over the weekend from Berean Baptist Church. The robber broke locks and the church’s safe, but it was empty. It was the fourth time the church in Ellenwood, southeast of Atlanta, has been robbed in two years. Davis said jokingly he’s considering putting up a note of his own telling potential robbers to call him instead and the church will take up a collection for them.

Baboon gangs on the rise in South Africa

Visitors to South Africa’s premier holiday destination who are worried about becoming victims of the country’s high crime rate could find themselves instead robbed by a more furry kind of felon: baboons. The cheeky primates have learned how to open car doors and jump through windows in pursuit of tasty sandwiches and snacks. City officials are battling to control the increasingly aggressive troupes and there are fears the problem will only worsen with the influx of visitors to Cape Town during the World Cup next year. On Tuesday, a troupe of 29 baboons raided four cars outside Simon’s Town, a small coastal neighborhood. A baboon dubbed “Fred,” the leader of the group, opened unlocked doors and jumped through windows to search for food. Many of those who stopped to watch the raid had their own cars broken into by other baboons. There are about 420 baboons in 17 troupes that roam the city’s outskirts, especially the popular scenic sites along the coast. Baboons are a protected species under South African legislation but their persistent pursuit of food has led to conflict with residents.

own toilet paper, an entourage bigger than the studio crew, and had two people lower her onto the sofa preinterview so as not to wrinkle her dress, the Daily Mail reports. GMTV’s host Kate Garraway told the Mail that during filming, Carey had “one person to walk in front of her backwards at all times in case she fell over and several people behind the camera making sure she was going to be filmed from the right angle.” CAREY Carey appeared on British morning show GMTV Tuesday singing her new single “I Want To Know What Love is.” “Have you ever heard anything like it? Oh, and she brought her own toilet roll as well,” added Garraway. In recent interviews, Carey has said she’s no longer a diva, thanks to her husband Nick Cannon.

CBS swoops up ‘sophisticated’ Lambert

Adam Lambert’s racy American Music Awards performance cost him a gig on “Good Morning America,” but he will perform live instead on morning rivals at CBS. Lambert was to sing on “GMA,” but the network said Tuesday it was canceling the openly gay singer because “we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning.” While singing his new song, “For Your Entertainment,” at the awards program on Sunday, Lambert kissed a male keyboardist, fondled a dancer and had another dancer briefly stuff his face in Lambert’s crotch. The performance prompted many complaints to ABC, and the network cut out the brief oral sex simulation for its West Coast broadcasts. Shortly after ABC’s cancellation, CBS quickly announced Tuesday that Lambert would appear on “The Early Show” this morning both to perform and discuss the reaction to Sunday’s appearance. Lambert is also appearing on David Letterman’s “Late Show” tonight. “We spoke to them about who our audience is and our expectations,” said Zev Shalev, the show’s executive producer. “He’s a very smart, sophisticated performer,” he said. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Bills consider Shanahan for head coach position Former Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan has been labeled a legitimate candidate to be the next Buffalo Bills head coach. The team has allegedly contacted Shanahan although the Bills have not discussed the search on record. Shanahan, a two-time Super Bowl champion, has been out of football since the Broncos fired him at the end of last season. A message left at his Denver office was not returned. He went 146-91 in 14 seasons in Denver, including the playoffs. But the Broncos struggled in his final three seasons, going 24-24, including an 8-8 finish last year in which they missed the playoffs after losing their final three games. Shanahan was fired with the Broncos owing him about $20 million over the final three years of his contract. The Bills would have to at least match what Shanahan’s owed if they intend to make a competitive offer.

Man tied to suspect in Broncos slaying convicted

A man with ties to a suspect in the drive-by shooting death of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams in 2007 has been convicted of a federal weapons charge. Shun Lamar Birch of Aurora is to be sentenced Feb. 9 for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. A jury convicted him Thursday. Prosecutors say Birch had a 2007 conviction in Adams County on a marijuana charge when officers found guns and ammunition at his home last year. He still faces state murder charges in the slaying of Kalonniann Clark before she was to testify against Willie Clark in an attempted murder case. Willie Clark is charged with killing Williams. He maintains his innocence.

Late hit on Avalanche costs Flyers

Philadelphia Flyers forward Daniel Briere was suspended for two games after a late hit on the Avalanche’s Scott Hannan on Monday. The incident occurred at 9:06 of the second period Monday night, right after Hannan had scored.

He will forfeit $67,358 in pay, with the money going to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund. Briere says he respects the decision and will try to move on once he’s back. Despite giving up two goals in the third period, the Avalanche won the game 5-4 , and will remain in first place in the Northwest Conference. Colorado will face Nashville at home on Wednesday. -The Associated Press contributed to this report

Federer locks up No. 1 ranking

Arguably the best tennis player ever, Roger Federer is letting everyone know that he is still on the top of his game. Federer once again bounced back after losing the first set, rallying to beat Andy Murray 3-6, 6-3, 6-1 Tuesday at the ATP World Tour Finals and ensuring he will have the year-end No. 1 ranking for the fifth time. Federer dominated Murray in the final two sets, finally controlling play from his serve and also getting his forehand on target. Federer, who has two wins from two matches in Group A and is favored to reach the semifinals at the season-ending tournament, still has to play Juan Martin del Potro in the round-robin stage. Del Potro beat Federer in the U.S. Open final.

Astana’s future questionable despite $22M pledge The future of Lance Armstrong’s former team is again in doubt. The Astana team, team of reigning Tour de France champion Alberto Contador, is hanging in the balance after cycling’s ruling body made new demands for financial guarantees. Kazakh Cycling Federation deputy president Nikolai Proskurin said Tuesday that the International Cycling Union is demanding a bank guarantee of Astana’s annual budget before it will renew its ProTour license. Proskurin says the demand is unreasonable and that he is unsure whether Astana can meet Wednesday’s deadline. The team’s inclusion in competition next season had appeared certain last week, when the oil-rich Kazakhstan government pledged $22 million in financial support for next season. UCI has given Astana until Wednesday to provide the guarantee, but Proskurin said it is unlikely the issue can be resolved by then. Failure to secure the ProTour license will force Astana to release Contador—the world’s top-ranked rider. RIGHT: Lance Armstrong, center, and Alberto Contador, left, represent team Astana during the 2009 Tour de France. Armstrong has since started his own team, and Astana is still struggling to remain intact despite a $22 million boost. AP Photo.

includes an entree, side dish and a beverage and will be offered at fast casual on mountain dining locations. An opening day Beaver Creek tradition, The World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Competition will be held at 2 p.m. sharp today in the Village near the ice rink. Skiers and riders can get a little sugar boost to help them through the last couple hours of the ski day and vote on their favorite cookie recipe. The top five finalists from last month’s Cookie Competition, which included more than 80 entries, will each be serving 1,000 cookies to determine the resort’s official “Cookie Time” recipe. The Ski and Snowboard School will also open for the winter season today with private and group instruction offered for kids and adults. Two new programs are available this season. The Ultimate 4, a semi-private lesson for kids featuring the “ultimate” student to instructor ratio of no more than four, provides more individualized feedback and more one-on-one time with your instructor. Rates start at $247 for the lesson only or $270 including a lift ticket. Ski School Adventure Sessions pairs similarly skilled intermediate or advanced skiers and riders with a guide to get the most our of a ski day, including liftline cutting privileges and technical tips for just $129 per person. Lift tickets for Beaver Creek’s opening day will be $69 for adults, $59 for seniors and $45 for children 12 and under. You can park for free in the parking lots along Highway 6 in Avon and ride a shuttle to the Village. Beaver Creek Village paid parking will also take effect today. For complete details on all of the resort’s events including the opening day World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookie competition, Holiday Tree Lighting and Gingerbread competition, World Cup and weekly family events, visit www.beavercreek.com.

lion general fund deficit by 2012, and a $5.3 million deficit in 2013. The last property valuations were done in 2008, before the current recession. The next round is set to begin in June 2010, and property values are expected to be lower. If the commissioners hold the current property tax rate, they’ll have $3 million less in the county’s general fund, the checkbook the county uses to conduct its daily business. “We’re projecting a big correction in 2012,” said John Lewis, the county’s finance director. The current trend reflects what taxpayers saw in 1985. That recession hammered local property values, then they increased over the next several years, said John Lewis, county finance director. “We’ve asked departments to take a hard look at expenses,” said Keith Montag, county manager. The county’s road and bridge department is taking the biggest hit in next year’s budget, deferring $1.2 million in road projects over the next the next three years. County staffers are scouring their departments looking for savings, practically to the point of counting paper clips. Spending on office supplies is down $39,486 from this time in 2008, from $149,968.85 to $110,482.17. Several senior staffers are opting to take early retirement. The county’s offer includes picking up the tab for health insurance for a year. They’re even drinking less coffee. The coffee fund shrunk from $28,000 to $14,000, since buying was consolidated in the county’s finance office.
