Schleper’s last shot

Today’s slalom may be Vail native’s final chance at Olympic medal By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer Vail’s own Sarah Schleper has been flying under the radar of the national media; nevertheless, she’s the U.S.’s best shot at a medal in the women’s slalom today. Schleper has never won an Olympic medal, which was one of the motivations for her return to professional ski racing after a two-year hiatus to recover from an ACL tear and care for her newborn son Lasse. The stars need to align for the 31-year-old, but that’s the way things

have been going for the U.S. Team, which has earned an unprecedented eight medals at these Olympics. Sarah’s dad Buzz said he thinks she’s peaking at just the right time, coming off two FIS slalom wins in Jackson Hole last week, in which she beat out several World Cuppers, including a handful from the dominant French technical team. At the events in Jackson, Schleper crushed the first race beating out Nastasia Noens of France by well over a second. And in her second race of the day she beat out Tessa Worley, (who has a World Cup win this season,) by

nearly .3 seconds. While Schleper has won individual runs on the World Cup and taken the podium in a handful of Europa Cups and NorAms, last week’s back-toback wins marked the first of the season for her. In today’s slalom, the key for [See SCHLEPER, page 18] RIGHT: Sarah Schleper of Vail speeds down the course yesterday during the second run of the giant slalom at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics in Whistler, British Columbia.

Local jam band to hit the road before releasing new album

Stocks backtracked from an early plunge Thursday but still closed lower on concerns about lingering economic weakness in the U.S. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 53 points after having fallen 188. Treasury prices, like the dollar, rose as investors sought safety. An unexpected rise in first-time claims for unemployment insurance made for a sour mood in the market.

The fellas from Frogs Gone Fishin’ just bought a new RV, Bertha, and they’re shoving off for a big Midwestern and Sothern tour that coincides with the release of their new album “Actual Natural” – but not before they throw one more rager at Finnegan’s in Avon tonight. The funky jam band, originally Denver-based, now Vail-embraced, is planning album release parties all over the country while on their 15-city tour this spring. But they say everyone in Vail should get ready for the biggest release party of them all when FGF comes home in May. “It feels great to be done with the album, although waiting for the release is always an anxious process. A lot goes into producing an independent disc after tracking, so we are still very busy,” lead guitarist Trevor Jones told the Mountaineer yesterday. The spring tour will travel throughout the Midwest, also touching down in Louisiana, Tennessee and Georgia. They’re especially excited to play three shows in Chicago and break into some new markets. “Touring is interesting because it involves hours and hours of tedious boredom followed by a couple hours of intense excitement during the show,” Jones said. “I’m excited to find out what life is like when we are able to stand up on the road in our new RV. This could open a world of possibilities for us.” The band says the best part about touring is meeting [See FROGS, page 19]

Local was not wearing a beacon By Brent Gardner-Smith Aspen Daily News Aspen local John Joseph Kelley was killed in a large avalanche Tuesday afternoon while skinning up a slope at 11,000 feet near the backcountry Lindley Hut, which is 4.5 miles above the Ashcroft ghost town and 16 miles from Aspen. Kelley, 60, was on a ski trip to the Lindley Hut with a small group of “close friends and family” when the avalanche occurred. Officials said Kelley triggered the avalanche and that he was not wearing an avalanche rescue beacon at the time. He was buried 3 feet deep in avalanche debris and could not be found by other members of his party. Rescue dogs were flown into the site Wednesday morning to locate Kelley’s body. The sheriff’s office did not identify the members of Kelley’s group, but said the group included Kelley’s sister and a woman who was either his wife or his longtime girlfriend, according to Alex Burchetta, assistant public information officer with the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office. Kelley, a carpenter, had once worked at the Ashcroft Ski Touring area for several years in the crosscountry rental shop and as a sleigh driver. “He was a good guy,” said John Wilcox, who runs the Ashcroft ski touring area and the Pine Creek Cookhouse. On Wednesday morning, Kelley’s body was located by rescue teams

using dogs and flown by helicopter to a staging area at the Ashcroft ghost town and then driven in an Aspen Mountain Rescue vehicle to Aspen Valley Hospital at about 10 a.m. The Pitkin County coroner found that Kelley died of suffocation with multi-system trauma as a contributing factor. Officials said there were eight people, including Kelley, on the hut trip. Kelley and five other members of the group were thought to have traveled to the hut on Monday. Two other members of the group climbed toward the hut Tuesday afternoon and reached the area just after the avalanche occurred a little after 4 p.m. Kelley was using climbing skins and skis to ascend the slope when the avalanche occurred, said Hugh Zuker, president of Mountain Rescue Aspen and a sheriff’s deputy. Calling for help One of the two women in the party who had arrived just after the avalanche on Tuesday afternoon skied back down to the Pine Creek Cookhouse to contact authorities. The sheriff’s office received a call at about 6 p.m. that reported an avalanche and a missing person. Other members of the hut party searched until dark for Kelley in the debris field using probe poles, Zuker said. After dark on Tuesday evening, Mountain Rescue sent four team members to the Lindley Hut on

skis, and staged a search effort using snowmobiles, but ceased vehicular search at nightfall. At 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, a group started boot-packing a helicopter landing area near the avalanche zone. Mountain Rescue had arranged the night before for Doug Sheffer of DBS Helicopters of Rifle to assist in the body recovery, along with three teams of ski patrollers and trained avalanche dogs. The helicopter made three trips from a helicopter staging area at Ashcroft in to the avalanche zone to insert the dog teams, which found Kelley’s buried body. Three members of Kelley’s party who “needed to get out” were then flown to Ashcroft by helicopter, Zuker said. “Doug Sheffer was an amazing resource,” said Zuker. “It would have cost us a lot more time and effort and blood and sweat if we didn’t have him around here.” Zuker also was grateful for John Wilcox’s assistance, including opening his home as a staging area for the effort. The remaining members of the hut trip party skied out Wednesday morning to Wilcox’s house and then came out via snowmobile, reaching the Ashcroft trailhead at about noon. Exercise Caution in the Backcountry “To whatever extent you are familiar with something, it requires that much more discipline and care,” Zuker said. “It’s really important that people stick to the basics in terms of safe avalanche travel. Number one, read the reports. The danger was high. And it is important to always use backcountry safety techniques. Have a beacon. Have a shovel and probe. And travel appropriately in groups by not exposing the entire group to a possible hazard.”

WWII vets of 10th Mtn. Div. speak at Ski Museum By Dawn Witlin Special to the Mountaineer In the winter of 1942, the fledgling soldiers of the 10th Mountain District carved Camp Hale from the Eagle River’s headwater valley in six months time. The camp, capable of housing 18,000 people, was at the time, the fourth largest town in the entire state of Colorado. At a special presentation Wednesday night at the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum in Vail, World War II 10th Mountain Division veterans Dick Over and Earl Clark regaled a packed to the floorboards crowd with their experiences as one of the first soldiers to train at Camp Hale. The beginnings of the equipment used at the Army camp were the great-grandfather prototypes of everything to do with skiing used nowadays, but extremely primitive. “Skis came in two sizes, 7 foot and 7 foot six,” said Over. “You had a pair of leather boots which were awfully heavy … you had to hike and climb and ski and march all with one boot. It wasn’t easy.” There were 14,000 soldiers trained in the 10th that year, 8,000 men were given skis and the other 6,000 were on snowshoes. “Your training was always with your legs directly over your ski and always with your pack on during training,” said Clark. The soldier’s packs, or rucksacks, weighed 90 pounds and were designed by the Sierra Club. The rucksacks went everywhere the soldier did. The soldiers, who were mostly plucked from ivy league colleges in New England, were responsible for building the world’s longest T-bar ski lift at what is now Ski Cooper, then known as Cooper Hill. “The T-bar is exactly that,” said Clark. “You don’t sit on it, it hits you on the rump and takes you up the mountain.” Another unusual aspect of life at Camp Hale was the cohabitation and training of the 3,000 mules which greeted the college students turned soldiers when they arrived to build the camp. “There was not a single vehicle in the entire inventory of the military that was designed to go over snow, so they came in very handy,” said Clark. “There’s something quite different from a Dartmouth skier and a Missouri mule. There was a lot of ‘Oh, my god, what did I get myself into?’ ” Over was just 17-years old when he enlisted in the division. He trained at Camp Hale for two winters and three summers before serving as a Signal Corp officer stationed in the Aleutian Islands.

10th Mountain Division veterans Dick Over and Earl Clark led a historic tour through the life of a mountain infantry soldier at Camp Hale at the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum in Vail Wednesday night. Here they stand with a giant hickory ski worn by the soldiers of the 10th.

Clark was recruited after demonstrating excellent mountaineering skills in the Grand Tetons and served in Italy before retiring at the rank of colonel. Clark survived the Battle of Riva Ridge, for which Vail’s longest ski run is named, during which 10th soldiers scaled and captured a series of mountains in the Italian Alps, pushing back the German troops. The terrain tested the specialized training of the 10th, who shined where others had failed. “Italy became a battle ground of one million men facing each other,” said Clark. “In 48 hours we captured two German defense positions. You may notice that my right arm is a little longer than my left … that comes from patting myself on the back.” Post war, Over noted, almost every one of the nation’s 64 major ski areas were either constructed, founded, managed, or instructed by the 10th Mountain Division veterans. “What we learned in those four to five years on that mountain is in our lives to this very day,” he said.

Business steady, so far Numbers indicate local economy is holding even By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Steady is the new up, and business around the valley is steady with last year. Travelers are showing up at slightly higher numbers, and spending about the same amount of money. Like everyone else, we’re hanging in there. Take the recent President’s Day weekend, for example. Rubber tire tourists cleared the Eisenhower/Johnson Tunnel to the tune of about 46,500 cars per day. “It means we were busy, but it doesn’t mean we were swamped,” said John Wilson, who helps run the tunnel for the Colorado Department of Transportation. Last year they saw 44,000 cars a day. A non-holiday weekend day sees about 38,000 cars clear the tunnel. “That’s about average for that holiday,” Wilson said. “As long as everyone remains safe, things move smoothly.” On the other hand, if you have a minor fender bender, you can slow traffic down from miles. Emergency vehicles have to come, even if it’s no big deal, Wilson said. Airport at pre-recession levels At the Eagle County Regional Airport, passenger numbers are about 10 percent ahead of last year, said assistant airport manager Chris Anderson. December was up 3.6 percent over last year with 800 additional passengers over last year. January was down 4.1 percent, 1,900 passengers. So far, weekend flights are pretty full coming in, Anderson said. “We’re happy to see numbers strong,” he said. The increase puts airport traffic back at pre-recession levels, according to the passenger counts. The 2008-2009 numbers were off 2.7 percent. That was barely a dent for that year, since airlines had reduced capacity by almost 8 percent. Besides, it could have been Sun Valley, Idaho, which was off 28 percent last year, and is having an equally rough time this year. Apparently, steady is the new up

only if you were up in the first place. Retail, real estate still down Overall retail sales took a tumble in 2009, of course, but seem to be holding steady so far this season, according to early 2010 reports. Eagle County’s sales tax numbers were off 20 percent last year, but are hanging in there this year. However, they’re not buying houses. The real estate sales, development and construction industry are still flagging. It starts with building permits, and the numbers took a nosedive. During 2008, Eagle County issues a total of 551 building permits were submitted totaling $113,469,589.42 in valuations. During 2009, that number plunged to 369 building permits were submitted totaling $78,523,433.06 in valuations. Statewide, residential building permit numbers fell 51 percent, from 19.086 in 2008 to 9,393 in 2009, according to a federal report from HUD. The overall percentage drop for the states – Colorado, Montana, South and North Dakota, Utah and Wyoming – was 27.6 percent. Utah had more building permits issued – 10,627 – than in Colorado.

To Africa and back

Local students give and volunteer in West Africa By Dawn Witlin Special to the Mountaineer The Davis brothers are proud to have a strong tradition of giving running through their family tree. Their 89-year-old great-grandmother Cathy Douglas has volunteered in the Vail Valley for more than 45 years. Their grandmother, Mary Ellen Anderson, has been a docent of the Denver Art Museum for more than 25 years. The family further nurtured their charitable roots last month when 11-year-old Todger, 13-year-old Quin, mother Carey and Mary Ellen visited the West African village of Geoul, located in the region of Senegal. The family brought art supplies and soccer balls to the village elementary schools, which they had collected on behalf of a Denver based non-profit “Friends of Geoul.” The charity has provided aid to the area since 2005. Carey, director of admissions at Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy, reflected on the conditions of the Geoul classrooms as they shared the arts and crafts. “Some of the kids had never seen paint before,” she said. “They didn’t have running water, they used traditional chalk boards.” Soccer is the most beloved pastime of the village children and the Davis brothers came prepared. Todger, a fifth grader at Red Sandstone Elementary and Quin, an 8th grader at VSSA, both collected 40 soccer balls to give to Geoul elementary schools before the trip. “The kids spent a ton of time just playing soccer, hanging out in the street with all the kids when they weren’t in school and some of them weren’t ever in school,” said Carey. “I was really excited to see the boys just go with the flow...I think they observed a lot of interesting things,

but I think they felt comfortable being there.” The Davis family roomed with a host family during their weeklong visit in a home without windows, which they shared with 16 other family members and dozens of chicken. “Every morning we ate hot chocolate and bread and for lunch and dinners we had rice platters with vegetables and cooked meats, shared from a large platter,” said Carey. “We made a joke of it, saying ‘Oh good, let’s have more rice,’ but the boys were definitely ready to have a Chipotle burrito.” The group communicated with villagers through Carey who speaks fluent French, gleaned from living and attending elementary school in West Africa. She returned nearly every year since to visit her father and taught kindergarten in Africa from 1994 to 1995. “I think one of the most interesting things about going there was

you said hello to everybody, you were always saying hello and engaging people,” said Carey. “It was quite refreshing actually because there is an automatic sense of community.” Quin and Todger immersed themselves in Geoul’s native culture, finding children who were the same age, but lived very different lives. “All of the people are extremely nice and put everyone else before themselves,” said Quin. “I expected it to be pretty bad, but not as bad as it was, how the buildings look half built, but I didn’t expect the people to be so loving with everything that they’ve gone through.” Two years ago, Mary Ellen took the boys on a trip to experience the culture of Turkey, and with the spirit of their West Africa trip being charity, their next adventure will be historically themed, said Carey. “How fun would it be to have the All-American road trip?” she said.

ENTERTAINMENT Frogs Gone Fishin’ at Finnegan’s, Avon

Salem at Main Street Grill, Edwards

Salem plays conscious funk, jazz, Hip-Hop composed by drummer/singer Todd Anders Johnson. The group has toured consistently throughout the US and Canada for the last 5 years at music venues, festivals, colleges and some of the biggest ski and snowboard events, such as the US Snowboarding Grand Prix, the VISA Cup in Telluride, the Winter X Games and the US Freeskiing Open. Their music has also been featured in the ski and snowboard film soundtracks like Warren Miller’s “Off the Grid.” They have played alongside some big acts such as Keller Williams, Pato Banton, De La Soul, Sweatshop Union, The Meters, Bone Thugs N Harmony, DJ Logic, The Motet, Steve Earle and Zilla. “Salem unites seemingly disparate topics: global peace and powder shots. Salem is as much at home in Warren Miller’s film Off the Grid as it is participating in Bono’s global ‘One Campaign.’ Blending jazz, funk, spoken word and some Afro-Cuban beats, it makes crowds dance and think,” said the Jackson Hole News and Guide. Music starts at 10 p.m. No cover as always at Main Street.



Jumping through rock, funk, soul, blues and reggae, Frogs Gone Fishin’ serves up a steaming plate of Colorado Rocky Mountain goodness. The Denver-based, locally embraced, New Orleans-inspired jam band has been funking things up in the Valley for a while now. Winner the Hot Summer Nights Fan Pick contest, the Frogs bring an up-tempo brand of original party jam. There is no cover. Music at 9 p.m. TONIGHT’S THEIR LAST SHOW IN THE VALLEY UNTIL MAY!

Boxcar Daisies at Kirby Cosmos BBQ, Minturn

Minturn’s Boxcar Daisies is quickly becoming one of the area’s most intriguing musical groups. Comprised of singer/songwriters KT Homes and Elli Gauthier, the powerhouse duo takes listeners on a mesmerizing journey – sometimes whimsical, sometimes somber but always heartfelt. Playing soulful originals and the occasional covers, their sound is timeless and yet relevant to the times; think early jazz vocals with just a handful

of sawdust. The band’s strengths lie in their silky harmonies, melodic prowess, and unique instrumentation. Music starts at 7 p.m.

DJ Miah at Samana, Vail Village

A native of Colorado, DJ Miah developed his mixing skills early through listening to some of Europe’s biggest house DJs. Through the years he has evolved into a sophisticated beat matcher of house, progressive and techno. Miah always keeps the crowd rocking and jumping.

Steve Meyer followed by Matt and Ted at The Club, Vail Village

If you’re looking for an après ski show that is not suited for the entire family, rather for people who like to party – a show that encourages a healthy amount of drinking, raunchy jokes and good times – Steve Meyer, at The Club in Vail Village, offers that alternative. Music kicks off at 5 p.m.

also on the 2007 and 2008 trips were exonerated by the panel, a congressional source familiar with the findings told The Associated Press. “I don’t want to be critical of the committee but common sense dictates that members of Congress should not be held responsible for what could be the wrongdoing or mistakes or errors of staff unless there’s reason to believe that member knew or should have known, and there is nothing in the record to indicate the latter,” Rangel said at a hastily called evening news conference on Capitol Hill. The finding is certain to jeopardize Rangel’s chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee. The tax-writing committee will take a lead as Congress determines the fate of former President George W. Bush’s expiring tax cuts.

Obama will go forward without GOP

Giving no ground, President Barack Obama and Republican leaders fought forcefully for their competing visions of historic health care reform yesterday in an exhausting, often-testy, live-on-TV debate. Far from any accord, Obama signaled the Democrats were prepared to push ahead for an all-or-nothing congressional vote. The marathon, 7½-hour session did reveal narrow areas of agreement on the topic that has vexed Congress for months and defied U.S. leaders for decades. But larger ideological differences overwhelmed any common ideas, all but cementing the widely held view that a meaningful bipartisan health care bill is not possible as time grows short in this election year. Party officials said March is probably the last chance to act. It has been more than a year since he proposed his overhaul, which would be important to virtually all Americans in remaking the way they receive and pay for health care. The version he embraces, basically tracking legislation passed by the Senate, would expand health coverage to some 30 million people who lack it and stop insurance companies from dropping people for questionable reasons or denying coverage to people who have certain illnesses.

“Nobody can tell me that during the last two years the Taliban did a single thing for you,” Gov. Mangal reportedly told hundreds of tribal elders and other men and boys, who applauded politely. “Can you tell me they built a school? A clinic? Helped the poor? Built roads? Fixed the canals?” According to the Journal’s report, the Afghan authorities and their international backers see the Marjah offensive—the biggest in the country since 2001— as a test of the effectiveness of U.S. President Barack Obama’s troop escalation, and of Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s pledge to crack down on corruption.

CNN health care poll shows little support for health care bill

Although the overall health care reform bills passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate are unpopular, many of the provisions in the existing bills are extremely popular, even among Republicans, according to a new national poll reports CNN. A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Wednesday indicates that only a quarter of the public want Congress to stop working on health care completely, while nearly three quarters say lawmakers should pass some version of health care reform. According to CNN, Twenty-five percent of people questioned in the poll say Congress should pass legislation similar to the bills passed by both chambers, with 48 percent saying lawmakers should work on an entirely new bill and a quarter saying Congress should stop all work on health care reform. “Many provisions of those bills are popular, particularly restrictions on health insurance companies,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland, was reported by CNN saying. “Roughly 6 in 10 would like a bill that prevents insurers from dropping people who become seriously ill or denying coverage to people with preexisting conditions. Seven in 10 favor requiring large and mid-sized companies to provide health insurance to their employees. Those proposals are popular among Republicans as well as Independents and Democrats. A cap on medical malpractice awards – something on the GOP’s wish list that is not in the current legislation – is also popular.”

Top Marine has a different opinion on DADT

The Marine Corps commandant said Wednesday that the ability of U.S. troops to fight and win wars must trump other concerns as the nation considers whether to let gays to serve openly in the military. In testimony before a House committee, Gen. James Conway said he supports a Pentagon assessment to determine how to lift the ban. But he also suggested that civil rights ultimately would have to take a back seat if it meant tampering with the military’s ability to protect the country. “That’s what they have been built to do under the current construct and I would argue that we’ve done a pretty good job bringing that to pass,” he told the House Armed Services Committee. “My concern would be that somehow that central purpose or focus were to become secondary to the discussion,” he said. President Barack Obama has pledged to change the policy, saying it unfairly punishes patriots who want to serve their country. Congress would have to agree, and it’s unclear whether Democrats would have enough votes to pass the legislation.

With bankruptcy looming, cussing tops California agenda

Californians had better start watching their mouths. The state Assembly passed a resolution Thursday that would establish the first week of March as “Cuss Free Week” throughout the state. If approved by the Senate next week, the measure would take effect immediately. The resolution includes no enforcement mechanism and is simply meant to promote greater harmony and connectedness, said Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, a Democrat from La Canada Flintridge and coauthor of the measure. “I’ve always wondered why we behave differently when grandma is watching than when we’re on our own,” said Portantino, who owned up to his share of four-letter words. Portantino said the California Legislature — known for imposing strict clean air and clean water laws — is the first state legislative body in the nation to consider a statewide profanity-free week.

Growing Pains’ actor found dead in Vancouver

Vail Mountaineer


Special Tonight

Trout Almondine!

Vancouver police say “Growing Pains” actor Andrew Koenig has been found dead. At a press conference in the downtown park where his body was found, police said foul play was not suspected, but would not release a cause of death because the coroner is still investigating. The actor’s father, Milton Koenig, said his son “took his own life.” Friends found the body at around noon Thursday in a heavily wooded area about 100 feet from a popular foot path. Koenig, 41, was visiting friends in Vancouver when he went missing more than a week ago. KOENIG The Venice, California, native had a recurring role on the 1980s sitcom as Boner, a pal of star Kirk Cameron’s character, Mike.

No death penalty for this killer

Despite calls to free or destroy the animal, SeaWorld said yesterday it will keep the killer killer whale that drowned its trainer, but will suspend all orca shows while it decides whether to change the way handlers work with the behemoths. Also, VIP visitors who occasionally were invited to pet the killer whales will no longer be allowed to do so. “We’re going to make any changes we have to to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” Chuck Tompkins, chief of animal training at SeaWorld parks, said a day after a 12,000-pound killer whale named Tilikum dragged a trainer into its pool and thrashed the woman to death as audience members watched in horror. Talk-radio callers, bloggers and animal activists said Tilikum — which was involved in the deaths of two other people over the past two decades — should be released into the ocean or put to death like a dangerous dog. Tompkins said that Tilikum would not survive in the wild because it has been captive for so long, and that destroying the animal is not an option either, because it is an important part of the breeding program at SeaWorld and a companion to the seven other whales there.

PETA turns to Tiger

According to the Orlando Sentinel, animal-rights group PETA plans to unveil within the next few weeks a “cheeky spay-and-neuter” billboard featuring Tiger Woods — without the golfer’s blessing. “The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals is searching for a local advertiser to put up a billboard in Windermere, which will include an image of Woods and text: ‘Too Much Sex Can Be a Bad Thing ....

Caped Crusader nets a million

A 1939 comic book in which Batman makes his debut sold at auction Thursday for more than $1 million, breaking a record set just three days earlier by a Superman comic, Heritage Auction Galleries said. The Dallas-based auction house said the rare copy of Detective Comics No. 27 sold for a total of $1,075,500, which includes the buyer’s premium, to a buyer who wished

to remain anonymous. The consigner wanted to remain anonymous as well. “It pretty much blew away all of our expectations and now it’s the highest price ever raised for a comic book,� said Barry Sandoval, director of operations of Heritage’s comics division. A copy of the first comic book featuring Superman, a 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1, sold Monday for $1 million in a sale between a private seller and a private buyer, with the transaction conducted by the New York City auction site “We can really say that Batman has nosed out Superman, at least for now,� Sandoval said.

Seinfeld and the art of parking in NYC

The New York Police Department is investigating why a Bronx police placard was displayed in comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s car. Seinfeld spokeswoman Elizabeth Clark Zoia on Wednesday said the performer wasn’t aware of the parking placard, which belonged to Seinfeld’s longtime driver, a retired police officer. She says the driver became concerned for Seinfeld’s safety when he arrived with the comedian to the studio where his new show is being filmed and found a crowd outside. She says the driver apparently posted the placard briefly so he could escort Seinfeld inside. The spokeswoman says Seinfeld is sorry and takes responsibility for the incident, which won’t be repeated. She says the driver won’t be fired. Police say their records indicate the paper placard had been turned in at the end of 2007, and they’re investigating. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

X games competitor dies in tragic skiing accident C.R. Johnson, a professional free skier who competed in the Winter X Games, died Wednesday after he fell and hit his head on a rock outcropping while taking a run down a steep chute at Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Squaw Valley. Johnson, 26, was skiing with a group of friends when he tried to negotiate a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very, very tight, rocky area,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Rogers, a member of the Lake Tahoe-area resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ski patrol. He fell face-first, then spun around and struck the back of his head on rocks. Johnson was wearing a helmet, but Rogers said the helmet took a serious blow. Ski patrol members were called shortly before 2 p.m. but were unable to revive him. Placer County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lt. Jeff Ausnow said Johnson died on the slopes. Rogers said Johnson was skiing recreationally and not as part of a competition when he lost his balance on the steep slope in a part of the resort known as the Light Towers area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a man of very, very strong skiing talent,â&#x20AC;? Rogers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This young man had been a fixture here at Squaw Valley for years. ... He grew up at Squaw Valley.â&#x20AC;? Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father was an avalanche forecaster at the resort for about a decade, Rogers said. The younger skier also had rebounded from a serious injury suffered during a competition in 2005 that put him in a coma for several months. Johnson was well-known at Squaw Valley, a challenging resort near Lake Tahoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s north shore that hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics. It also is the home base for several members of the U.S. ski team,

Schleper will be putting together solid back-to-back runs. (Slalom consists of two runs, with the best aggregate time determining the winner.) In Lienz, Austria, with the fastest second run, she proved she could ski faster than everyone else on the World Cup. It just needs to be a little more consistent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been skiing really well in slalom. This result is more than I could hope for. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so close to the podium,â&#x20AC;? Schleper said after that race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In slalom youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always recovering from mistakes. So, to put a clean run down that was aggressive and fast ... thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a lot more involved. When everything lines up, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great.â&#x20AC;? Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tech Coach Trevor Wagner said Schleperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success was a matter of putting all the pieces together over a period of time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year she had all the ingredients, but she just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the mileage with that technique,â&#x20AC;? Wagner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With last year underneath her belt everything is coming together now. We started working on her technique again and building on what we had before, but more modern technique. Now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comfortable with it and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all coming together.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;¨â&#x20AC;¨ Vailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lindsey Vonn also plans to ski the slalom today with a hard, plastic brace protecting her right pinkie, which she broke during a tumble in the giant slalom

FROGS FINAL SHOW BEFORE TOUR IS TONIGHT new people and experiencing their â&#x20AC;&#x153;various penchants for late night activities.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;All musicians have to get out of their home habitat and roam the country for their economic and artistic survival. You have to break open new markets, and traveling is always a catalyst for new song ideas,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. FGFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first couple tours were to the Midwest, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where many of their connections have cropped up. But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to also head out to the West Coast at some point. While theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning on decking out the inside of the RV, the Frogs have instituted a strict rule of low profile stealth movement on the road, which prohibits them from getting to crazy on the outside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Planning for the tour and recording the album, all the while trying to make all of our Colorado shows has been nothing less than exhausting,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last show will serve as a big thank you to everybody in the Valley for supporting us and ultimately giving us the confidence that all artists need â&#x20AC;&#x201C; confidence to be the band we know we can be.â&#x20AC;? Making â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Actual Naturalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Frogs Gone Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new album â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actual Natural,â&#x20AC;? which goes on sale in March, was recorded at the Evergroove Studio in Evergreen, Colo. Located out in the woods, ten miles off the main road, the studio has a cozy, log-cabin feel. The fridge is always stocked with beer, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot-tub waiting after a long day of recording. Evergroove is one of the only recording studios in the country to use homegrown solar energy, which is generated on-site to power its facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The quality of audio that gets tracked inside those walls is inspiring to be a part of,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our producer Brad Smalling is such a positive, focused guy. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make a tiny suggestion that will open up big musical doors for us.â&#x20AC;? Brad will also bring the boys gas when they run out on the way to the studio. FGF has come a long way, both musically and geographically, since they recorded their debut album â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tell Me Trueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; over two years ago. Since then, the Frogs have traveled across the country, logging extended stints in New Orleans, where many of the tunes on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actual Nat-

uralâ&#x20AC;? were written and performed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The time we spent out on the road was a valuable tool in recording the new album,â&#x20AC;? guitarist/vocalist Andrew Portwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a deeper pulse, warm melodies, more grit and distortion on the new album. We have been experimenting with some new sounds and movements.â&#x20AC;? At their live shows, Frogs Gone Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will never play a song the same way twice, and that attitude of perpetual development carries over into the studio. Portwood says a song is much like a good story; it has a beginning, middle and end, with a twist somewhere along the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes if we are hung up on a song or section, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play it in live performance to hear it in a different setting, or weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try something new with the chorus or bridge.â&#x20AC;? Putting it all together, an album is like a picture taken in time, Portwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is where we are in our lives and gives the listener a way to connect with our emotions and visions.â&#x20AC;? Recording in the 21st Century Traditionally, record labels spend hundreds of thousands financing an album. Before personal computers, a band would spend months in a studio getting everything right and then spend the rest of their musical lives paying the record label back for their â&#x20AC;&#x153;generousâ&#x20AC;? down payment, explains Jones. Although recording has gotten cheaper thanks to the modern technology, finding a financier and someone who truly knows how to run the software remains a challenge. The record industry used to have control over recording costs, but now it is much more cost effective to release an album independently and still get world-wide distribution with iTunes and other internet outlets, says Portwood. The new Frogs Gone Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; album â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actual Naturalâ&#x20AC;? will be available next month on Mountain Size Records. Their current record Tell Me True is available on iTunes and at your local record shop. Check out their tour schedule at Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be previewing several of their new songs tonight at Finneganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at 9 p.m. Frogs Gone Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; returns to Colorado May 8 to host KZYRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Party for the Planet.
