Schleper fastest slalom racer in North America Vail native led US, Canadian squads in what was likely her last Olympics By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer Vail native Sarah Schleper led the charge for the American squad in 16th at yesterday’s women’s slalom, the final Women’s Alpine race of these Olympics. Slalom is perhaps the most unpredictable of the Alpine disciplines, and while the finish was well shy of Schleper’s podium aspirations, making her fourth



The stock market eked out a gain Friday as investors took downbeat economic news in stride. the Commerce Department reported that the nation’s economy grew at a faster pace than initially estimated for the end of 2009. The stronger growth from the third quarter to the fourth quarter was welcome news but analysts say much of the gain is tied to businesses rebuilding inventories. Gross domestic product grew at an annual rate of 5.9 percent, above the 5.7 percent previous estimate. Growth is expected to slow in the coming quarters.

Olympic appearance after a two-year hiatus is a tremendous accomplishment in itself. Lindsey Vonn did not finish, which has been the case with most of her GS and slalom races this season. Consequently, her success at these Olympics has been unfairly questioned by some in the national media, who for some reason developed unrealistic and uninformed expectations for the Vail resident. Vonn’s real shots at medals were in the downhill,

super combined and super G disciplines. She won the downhill, took bronze in the super G and did not finish the super combined, which combines downhill and slalom, after winning the downhill portion of that race. Germany’s Maria Riesch won her second gold of the Games with yesterday’s slalom. Racing with her chin bandaged from a cut sustained when she hit a gate in prerace training, Schleper followed up a strong performance in giant slalom that landed her 16th in the final after starting with the day’s ninth-fastest first run. “My jacket was covered in blood, I [See SHELEPER, page 19]

Fresh off silver in Vancouver, Mark Johnson to lead local hockey camp

Bob Johnson Hockey School founded by coach’s father The Vail Recreation District is pleased to announce the return of the 25th annual Bob Johnson Hockey School in July featuring instruction by Mark Johnson. Johnson is the current head coach of the 2010 U.S. Olympic Women’s Ice Hockey team and led the team to the silver medal this week. Johnson, who was also the leading scorer of the U.S. team that won the Olympic gold medal in 1980 at Lake Placid, N.Y., has taught at the VRD’s ice hockey camp for the past 25 years and is the son of the hockey school’s founder, Bob Johnson. The hockey camp will take place July 18-24 at Dobson Ice Arena and costs $445 for open registration, $420 for Eagle County residents, $400 for Vail residents or $175 for the goalie session. Participants must be eight years or older with one year of prior ice hockey experience. All age groups will receive three hours


of on-ice instruction and one hour of off-ice instruction during the school per day. The camp will conclude with a 90 minute skate and graduation session. Dobson Ice Arena Manager Jared Biniecki says the school is an important tradition to the learning programs that the arena offers. “We’re thrilled Mark and the many other qualified coaches are returning to Vail to teach ice hockey to our local and visiting youth,” said Biniecki. “Participants of the Bob Johnson Hockey School are fortunate to have not only former National Hockey League and Olympic players as coaches, but actual head coaches of Olympic teams and junior and collegiate teams to learn from.” Registration is available through July 18. For more information, contact Biniecki at 970-479-2280 or by email at

Peace officers compete in Golden Peak ski race By Dawn Witlin Special to the Mountaineer There were only two rules at the Colorado Peace Officers Ski and Snowboard Race: Try not to take yourself too seriously out there and have fun. The 37th annual races were held at Golden Peak yesterday At setup, race crews set the mood by painting ‘Race Crew Rules, Cops Drool,’ in large red letters at the finish line. “I came for the camaraderie with all the other agencies,” said Avon Police Lt. Greg Daly after the first run. “It’s a good way to network with the other departments. This job is stressful enough, it’s good to take a day to relax.” The race wasn’t reserved for active duty police officers alone. Some were emergency dispatchers, administrators and retired officers, others were Secret Service and DEA agents from Denver and still more hailed from Arizona, Texas and New Jersey. A team from the District Attorney’s Office, including Mark Hurlbert, Ryan Kalamaya and Scott Turner, took home a third place trophy in the advanced skiing category. Cmdr. Joe Ribeiro, director of the Vail Public Safety Communications Center has been competing in the race since he joined the department three years ago. “It’s a chance to meet other officers and people from different departments, officers, dispatchers, administrators,” he said. “We get to meet people from all over Colorado and have a fun day instead of a work day.” The event was made possible with day long ski passes donated by Vail Resorts, an individual admission fee of $75 per person, and support from Gold Peak Ski School. Lunch followed the race at Sarge’s in Mid-Vail and an awards ceremony was held that evening at Gold Peak Grill, with door prizes from Sports Authority, Antlers at Vail, The Marriott, Sandbar, and Betty Ford’s Alpine Garden. Terry Neve, owner of Neve’s Uniforms and Equipment gave away girt certificates, t-shirts and polos, utility knives, flashlights, and a gun safe at the event. Neve’s has sponsored the event since 1980, around the time Terry began skiing in the race as an officer in the Wheatridge PD. “This event builds camaraderie, their common bond

and relationships with one another,” said Neve. Grand prizes included a pair of skis and a snowboard donated by Budweiser. A slew of wine, champagne and liquor was also raffled off, courtesy of Vail’s Craig Westering. “This champagne is the cheapest you can buy,” said Westering to rousing laughter. “But it’s the best. It’s only nine dollars, but it’s the best.” The Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum also had a hand in the event this year, serving as a place for registration, and donating a spot for the team’s winning trophy, which is itself a historic artifact. Coors donated the white limestone trophy in 1991 and every year the winning team is engraved on a copper plate and tacked on. Summit County took the trophy this year, winning first place in the expert ski category with racers Mark Watson, Jeff Wilson and Wes Mumford. Team Vail won first place intermediate, with racers Carol Lewis Zilli, Fran Micka and “Holy” Moses Gonzalez. First place in the novice category went to the United States Secret Service team.

Even without new West Vail station, town capable of better fire suppression than 92 percent of state Town of Vail hiring seasonal firefighters

A heavy air tanker drops fire retardant on a small fire above Intermountain in West Vail Friday, August 7, 2009. Vail’s ISO fire suppression rating recently improved to be better than 92 percent of the state; the town has approved construction of another fire station which is expected to boost the rating again. Avery Cunliffe photo.

An evaluation of fire suppression capabilities within the town of Vail has shown improvement according to a report released by the Insurance Services Office (ISO) following an inspection in June. The ISO’s public protection classification report is used nationally to help establish fair premiums for homeowners and commercial fire insurance. In announcing the results, Fire Chief Mark Miller says the ISO rating has been adjusted to show several areas of improvement following the last evaluation which occurred in 1992. Those improvements have included upgrades to the emergency communications system and the water distribution system. As a result, Vail’s new rating has improved from a 5/9, to a 4/9. Lower scores reflect improvements in fire protection services. The 4 classification incorporates all town of Vail property, while the 9 classification is an indicator of all unincorporated property outside the town. The new rating takes place May 1, 2010. Only eight percent of the communities in Colorado have a better rating than Vail’s newest score. Chief Miller says the improved rating could mean a reduction in insurance rates -- some residents may see a reduction, while most commercial properties will likely see lower rates. Miller advises property owners to contact their insurance agents to determine if their rates could be reduced due to the improved classification. A community’s investment in fire mitigation is a proven predictor of future losses, according to the rationale used by the ISO in its evaluation process. ISO analyzes relevant data

and assigns a public protection classification rating from 1 to 10. Class 1 is exemplary, while a 10 indicates the fire suppression program does not meet ISO’s minimum criteria. A public protection classification score is assessed based on three elements: 1) the fire alarm and communications system (Vail Public Safety Communications); 2) the Fire Department (Vail Fire and Emergency Services); and the 3) water distribution system (Eagle River Water and Sanitation District). Miller says aside from the ratings, an ISO evaluation allow the fire department and community to take a close look at all aspects of fire suppression and make improvements as needed. He says future ratings are expected to improve even more in Vail with the pending construction of the West Vail fire station. The station is to be built on the former Wendy’s restaurant site in West Vail which the town acquired in 2007. As designed, the station will be approximately 11,500 sq. ft., with an approximately 3,000 square ft. 12-room student resident dorm on the second floor. The building will include a threebay, drive-through scenario with quarters for on-duty firefighters, administration offices and a training room. The current ISO rating showed deficiencies in the distribution of ladder companies and the distribution of fire stations, which are being addressed, says Miller. He anticipates another evaluation occurring in approximately 12 months. Plans call for the West Vail Fire Station to be built in 2010 and operational by late 2010 or early 2011.

The Town of Vail is taking applications for six seasonal wildland firefighter openings that will be used to staff the town’s wildfire mitigation crew for the fourth consecutive season. The crew members will work from May 10 to Oct. 31 and will assist with tree cutting, pile burns, property inspections and other assignments to support the town’s forest health projects, which will continue for the next several years. The new firefighters will also be available to respond to wildfire incidents in the surrounding area. Applicants must have or show the ability to obtain a basic wildland firefighter certification as well as a tree cutting certification within 30 days of being hired. Applications are due March 12 and are available on the town’s Web site at Last season the crew was responsible for removing 557 hazardous trees on public property, completion of a town-wide hazardous tree assessment, plus free FireWise property inspections. In addition, the crew responded to a wildfire in the West Vail area that burned about an acre of U.S. Forest Service land before it was contained. During the upcoming season the crew will be involved with fuel mitigation in areas that border U.S. Forest Service land adjacent to private and town-owned properties. In addition there will be a cooperative effort with the Forest Service to improve safety on the North Trail and other trails that are within the town. The crew’s activities are managed by Tom Talbot, wildland coordinator for Vail Fire and Emergency Services.

Habitat dedicates 2 more Local families help build the homes they buy

Re-touch, Hair Cut and Conditioning Treatment $10 Hair Cuts for Kids 10 and under. Sundays only


Next to the Movie Theater Open Sundays 10-2

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Habitat for Humanity of Eagle & Lake Counties handed the keys to their 26th and 27th Fox Hollow homes to their two new partner homeowners, the Amaya and Castillo families. The two families have six children between them, and that makes almost 100 kids the local Habitat group has helped house in its Fox Hollow site in Edwards. When it’s done, Habitat will house 35 families in Fox Hollow. Habitat puts together donations of money, materials and volunteer labor to build homes. Those homes are sold to partner families that earn between 25 percent and 60 percent of the area median income. Beck Building Company donated the construction. Founded in 1995, Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties builds simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with local families in need. The partner families work 750 hours, building sweat equity. Families then make a small down payment and pay monthly payments on a zero interest mortgage. Their mortgage payment revolves back through the organization and funds construction of more homes. Since it was founded in 1976, Habitat International has built more than 300,000 houses worldwide for more than 1.5 million people. For more information, go to www.


Ada Amaya teared up when she told local Habitat for Humanity volunteers that her new home was a dream come true for her children and herself. The Amaya and Castillo families became the 26th and 27th families to partner with Habitat to help build and buy homes in Habitat’s Fox Hollow site in Edwards. They new homes were dedicated Wednesday. The Amaya family is, from left, Yahaira, Ada, Joshua and Maris.

Margot Snowboarder survived three days in Construction backcountry on a single energy bar Specializing in: Wayne Brown ready to ride again after Wolf Creek ordeal A snowboarder who survived three days in the Colorado backcountry with a single energy bar for food said he feels well and is ready to return to the slopes Sunday. Wayne Alexander Brown, 42, of Alamosa, said yesterday he’ll be more careful next time and will take along his new avalanche beacon and an extra energy bar. “It was a roller coaster,” he said. “One minute I thought I was going to live, and the next I thought I was going to die.” Brown said he became disoriented in a whiteout at the Wolf Creek Ski Area last Saturday and didn’t realize he had wandered out-of-bounds. He said he first headed downhill, then followed a stream, using his snowboard to climb through waist-deep snowdrifts. Brown said he fasted Sunday, ate half his energy bar on Monday and the other half on Tuesday. After about

72 hours in the wilderness, a helicopter commissioned by the ski resort saw Brown’s tracks in the snow and found him — weak but otherwise unscathed. He slept the first night under a tree, taking shelter from the fast-falling snow. The following day he kept walking, trying to get past a waterfall by jumping with his board, but that resulted in him falling, bruising his ribs and losing his hat, goggles and a glove. After the fall, Brown came upon an abandoned U.S. Forest Service cabin with a gas stove, where he could melt snow for water and dry his damp clothes. Brown tried to move farther, but stayed in the cabin the next two nights. The bruises and some tingling — not frostbitten — fingers and toes are the only injuries he sustained. “It’s a miracle. I’m in pretty good shape,” he said.

The Movement Studio unveils Gytronics system at open house

Vail Mountaineer


Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get caught with your pants down

Expansion system used by Tiger Woods, Shaquille Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal By Michael Gallagher Special to the Mountaineer The Movement Studio in Edwards had a successful open house for their new location last Wednesday, with not only loyal clients, but also a number of interested visitors. The Gyrotonics system, used by The Movement Studio, is effective. Professional athletes who have used the system include Tiger Woods and Shaquille Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal. Her clientele includes top local athletes and â&#x20AC;&#x153;agingâ&#x20AC;? sports enthusiasts, who are dealing with aches and pains that inevitably develop from pounding moguls, running, bicycle crashes, resulting in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eagle County Athlete Arthritisâ&#x20AC;?. Owner and instructor Colleen Downard moved to her new location at the Edwards Commercial Park in December, which will support larger group activities, and a massage room. The studio already has a massage therapist, an acupuncturist, and a Feldenkreis instructor. Colleenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to keep her clients participating in sports their entire lives, and to keep their pain to a minimum. The program allows them to maintain their range of motion and mobility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I use my years of experience teaching other disciplines as well,â&#x20AC;? said Downard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I taught Pilates for a long time, and I was a dancer. Through dance we studied a lot of holistic disciplines and movement therapy, but when I found Gyrotonics, it was the best movement system for me. It seems to work well for my clients.â&#x20AC;?

We guarantee a royal ďŹ&#x201A;ush REAL 24 HOUR SERVICE


The Movement Studio owner and instructor Colleen Downard is seen here working out on a Gyrotonics machine.

Her program is based on the Gyrotonics Expansion System, created by Juliu Horvath in White Cloud, N.Y. The equipment consists of exercise towers that, while similar in appearance to weight machines, are designed for circular movements. They are made to work around the human body, and have no jarring or strenuous impact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the closest you can get to getting in a pool without actually getting under water,â&#x20AC;? said Downard The studioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gyrotonics equipment can accommodate up to three people at once, while Downard offers individual instruction. She also offers Gyrokinesis, Gyrotonic movement sans equipment, which

allows larger groups to train. Downard previously managed the Vail Athletic Club, and taught Pilates there. She has taught Gyrotonics elsewhere, including Seattle, Boulder, and Breckenridge. She has multiple Gyrotonics certifications, she went on to study with Master Trainers, a physical fitness training program, where she received Part 1 of her Trainer Instructor certification. The Movement Studio is located in the Edwards Commercial Park 206 building D, at 215 Edwards Village Boulevard. Their phone number is 471-4771.

Broncos player testifies in teammateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s murder Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall testified in the trial of a man accused of killing teammate Darrent Williams and identified the suspect as the same man he saw outside a club in a confrontation before the shooting. Marshall was at times emotional when he testified Friday about the shooting on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day 2007, recalling how he later saw former teammate Javon Walker in a bloodstained shirt at a hospital, clutching a necklace that belonged to Williams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;JWalk just kept looking at this chain, he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let no one hold the chain,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was scary; there was blood on that chain.â&#x20AC;? Willie Clark, 26, is on trial for first-degree murder, 16 counts of attempted murder and other charges. Prosecutors say he fired the fatal shots into Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rented limousine. Clark maintains he is innocent; his defense attorneys argue heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scapegoat. Authorities said the shooting happened after

Williams and other football players got into an altercation at a Denver nightclub with another group that included Clark. Marshall identified Clark in court as being among those involved in the confrontation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the guy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in that picture, in that video and at this table right here,â&#x20AC;? Marshall said, pointing at Clark. But Marshall also said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see who got into the SUV used in the shooting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, I just seen them scatter,â&#x20AC;? he said, referring to the meleeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aftermath. Prosecutors also showed surveillance video of outside the club while Marshall was testifying. They said people were flashing gang signs. Marshall said that at one point he tried to go over a snow bank toward someone in the group but that he slipped and someone punched him in the face. Marshall, who was not in the limo when Williams was shot, said he later got a phone call from someone telling him what had happened.

Barely two minutes into the game, Finnish goalie Miikka Kiprusoff was staring at the ceiling in disbelief. It turns out he was just getting started. Ryan Malone raced into Finland’s zone, picked off Kiprusoff’s ill-advised pass and scored into an empty net. The U.S. rout was on. What happened next in this semifinal jolted Canada Hockey Place: The Americans scored four times on Kiprusoff in a six-goal first period Friday, winning 6-1 and surging into the Olympic gold-medal game. As the

clock ran out, U.S. captain Jamie Langenbrunner led the celebration by banging his stick against the boards as his teammates hugged on the bench . The U.S. will meet the Canada-Slovakia winner on Sunday, 50 years to the day after capturing gold in 1960 at Squaw Valley, Calif. “It was a crazy 12 minutes,” said forward Patrick Kane, who scored twice. “I’ve never been a part of something like that. It seemed like we were scoring every shift.”

Underage Chinese Olympian competed in 2000


Don’t Break the Bank

U.S. men’s Olympic hockey team to go for gold tomorrow

China should be stripped of its bronze medal from the 2000 Olympics because one member of the squad has been found to be underage, international gymnastics officials said Friday. Dong Fangxiao was 14 during the Sydney Games, according to an investigation by the International Gymnastics Federation. Gymnasts must be 16 during the Olympic year to compete. “Young gymnasts cannot be manipulated,” FIG president Bruno Grandi said. “Athletes must be protected.”

A second gymnast on the 2000 squad, Yang Yun, also was suspected of being underage. But there was insufficient evidence her age had been falsified, and the FIG said it was giving her a warning. The FIG has “cancelled” all of Dong’s results from Sydney and forwarded its investigation to the International Olympic Committee. Because the case involves the Olympics, it is up to the IOC to decide if China should lose any medals. The IOC has said previously it

would take “necessary measures” if any gymnasts were found to be underage. “We can confirm that we have received the ruling from the FIG in the case concerning Dong Fangxiao and Yang Yun, and we take due note of their decision,” IOC spokesman Mark Adams said. “Clearly, we need to take time to consider the findings before the Executive Board can consider the matter. We would like to thank the FIG for their work and we would refer further inquiries to them.”

Gatorade dumps Tiger Add Gatorade to the list of endorsement deals that Tiger Woods has lost. A representative for the drink, sold by PepsiCo Inc., confirmed late Friday that it had ended its relationship with the golfer, who made a lengthy public apology last week for his infidelities. “We no longer see a role for Tiger in our marketing efforts and have ended our relationship,” a Gatorade spokeswoman said. “We wish him all the best.” The spokeswoman said Gatorade would continue its relationship with the Tiger Woods Foundation. She declined to say whether his contract was terminated early because of trouble with his public image. Gatorade discontinued its Tiger Woods-brand drinks in November, a decision made before Woods’ marital problems became known. At the time, Gatorade stuck by him as a sponsor, but it too relented on Friday, becoming the third major endorsement the golfer has lost. AT&T Inc. and Accenture dropped Woods in the weeks following the tabloid frenzy of cheating allegations.

Party like a . . . female hockey star? Carry on, ladies. Canada’s top Olympic official sees no reason to put a damper on the women’s hockey team’s beerswigging, cigar-smoking celebration of its gold-medal victory over the U.S. In Whistler and Vancouver, Olympic sentiment largely supported the players who went back onto the ice for an impromptu party well after the fans had left Canada Hockey Place on Thursday. While the players spent much of Friday apologizing, several top Olympic officials praised the Canadians’ third straight gold-medal run, even while encouraging them to be a bit more discreet next time. “As far as we’re concerned, the matter is closed,” said Michael Chambers, president of the Canadian Olympic Committee. “It was nothing more than an error of judgment committed at the exciting time of winning a gold medal. It was a spilling out of the celebration that was going on in the dressing room.” Other Olympians playfully wondered aloud what they could do to top the Canadian women’s fiesta, which included players pouring drinks into each other’s

cerned about his faltering agenda and his handling of a domestic abuse case involving a trusted aide. Paterson cited a litany of distractions that prompted him to end his campaign, but said he had never abused his office. “But I am being realistic about politics,” he said. “It hasn’t been the latest distraction. It’s been an accumulation of obstacles that have obfuscated me from bringing my message to the public.” Paterson insisted that he would not resign and pledged to serve out his term “fighting for the state of New York.” Paterson became governor in 2008, when former Gov. Eliot Spitzer resigned in a prostitution scandal. During his two-year tenure, he seemed to be overwhelmed by one crisis after another: a bungled appointment to an open U.S. Senate seat, a budget standoff with the state Legislature, and, just this week, a damaging New York Times report, which said the governor and a member of his security detail had contacted a woman pressing an abuse charge against a top Paterson aide.

Rangel won’t resign tax-writing chairmanship

The House ethics committee says Rep. Charles Rangel’s aides tried at least three times to show him that his Caribbean trips had corporate sponsors, but he denies seeing any of the written communications. The ethics committee report released Friday is important in determining how aware Rangel was that he was receiving corporate gifts. The powerful Ways and Means Committee chairman says he did nothing wrong because his staff never told him about corporate sponsors. The report says investigators could not determine whether Rangel, D-N.Y., saw two staff memos to him in 2008 and a letter addressed to him in 2007. Rangel refuses to step aside as top House tax writer because of the report, which accuses him of violating rules governing gifts that lawmakers can accept.

CNN poll shows mistrust of government

A majority of Americans think the federal government poses a threat to rights of Americans, according to a new national poll by CNN. Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/ Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government’s become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens; forty-four percent of those polled disagree, reports CNN. The survey indicates a partisan divide on the question: only 37 percent of Democrats, 63 percent of Independents and nearly 7 in 10 Republicans say the federal government poses a threat to the rights of Americans, according to CNN’s poll.

For the first time, former President George W. Bush has said publicly that he approves of former Vice President Dick Cheney’s high-profile role in defending the past administration’s national security policies, according to Politico. “I’m glad Cheney is out there,” Bush reportedly said Friday morning at a reunion breakfast that was the inaugural event for the Bush-Cheney Alumni Association. “The reception, held at a downtown Washington hotel, was closed to the press. Attendees supplied this account of the remarks,” reports Politico. “Cheney originally had been scheduled to appear with Bush but did not come because he is recovering from a heart scare. Bush visited his former vice president in McLean on Thursday and said Cheney ‘is feeling well’ and has ‘a fierce constitution.’” Bush said in Politico’s report: “I don’t want to be involved in politics, but I do in policy.” He talked about his own record, saying of his signature education reform: “No Child Left Behind was the most advanced civil rights legislation since the Voting Rights Act.” In Politico’s report, Bush urged humility: “Don’t swagger. Sometimes I got carried away rallying the country,” he said. “I think the swagger criticism was fair. A lot of others weren’t. I hope I conveyed a sense that I was a lowly sinner who found redemption. I’m not better than anyone else. What makes me different from others is that I realized I needed help.”

The local economic forecast tied to President Barack Obama’s proposed NASA budget keeps growing bleaker reports Florida Today. Revised projections now show that about 23,000 workers at and around Kennedy Space Center will lose their jobs because of the shuttles’ retirement and the new proposal to cancel the development of new rockets and spacecraft, according to Florida Today. That sum includes 9,000 “direct” space jobs and -conservatively speaking -- 14,000 “indirect” jobs at hotels, restaurants, retail stores and others that depend on activity at the space center, Lisa Rice, Brevard Workforce president, reportedly told Florida Today. “The organization’s earlier estimate of 7,000 direct jobs reflected just the retirement of the shuttle program,” reports Florida Today. “The updated numbers also include the cancellation of Project Constellation and other initiatives as outlined in the president’s 2011 budget, Rice said.”

Committee, the top US diplomat reminded rich Pakistanis that they had a duty to enable their government to fund schools and hospitals and to spend more on other social projects by paying taxes, according to Dawn Media Group, an Arabic news source. “The very well-off” in Pakistan “do not pay their fair share for the services that are needed, in health and education primarily,” she reportedly stated. “Secretary Clinton said the US, along with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, was looking for ways to pressure nations that received loans and grants to broaden their tax base,” reports Dawn Media. “US spending on Pakistan, she said, were designed to promote political stability, weaken terrorist elements and help the war effort in neighboring Afghanistan.” In Dawn Media’s report, Mrs. Clinton said the US, which last year approved a non-military annual aid package of $1.5 billion for Pakistan for five years, was also trying to boost trade and other investment opportunities in that country.

PETA yields to IMG billboard suggestion

According to the New York Post, Tiger Woods wasn’t amused by billboards that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals planned to put up bearing his face and the slogan, “Too much sex can be a bad thing.” “Lawyers for the horndog golfer threatened to sue the activists if they used his once-valuable image in their campaign urging owners to neuter their pets,” reports the Post. “So now PETA says it will feature another famous philanderer, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, with the possible tagline: ‘Your dog doesn’t have to go to South America to get laid.’” A PETA source told the Post, “We were contacted by Tiger’s lawyers at IMG who kindly, but firmly, told us we were not authorized to use his image on the billboard, and would we desist. We agreed and have now turned the focus of our campaign to Mark Sanford.” According to the Post, the nixed ad featured an image of Woods with the words, “Too much sex can be a bad thing . . . for little tigers too. Help keep cats (and dogs) out of trouble: Always spay or neuter!”

Newspaper apologizes to Muslims

Danish daily Politiken on Friday apologized to Muslims for possibly offending them by reproducing cartoons of Prophet Mohammed in 2008, but said it did not regret publishing the drawings, reports the Associated Free Press. “We apologize to anyone who was offended by our decision to reprint the cartoon drawing,” the newspaper reportedly said in a statement. “Politiken is the first Danish newspaper to formally apologize to those who may have resented the publication of the cartoons,” reports AFP. “It published on Friday an agreement reached with eight organisations from Australia, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian territories representing 94,923 descendants of the Muslim prophet.” According to AFP, in the agreement Politiken said it regretted if it had insulted Muslims’ faith, but that it did not regret publishing the drawings and that it did not re-

nounce the right to publish the controversial drawings again. The newspaper’s editor-in-chief, Toeger Seindenfaden, said he was happy with the outcome. “We deplore that Muslims were offended even if that was not our intention,” he told AFP.

Secret Service mainframe may be older than you

A classified review of the United States Secret Service’s computer technology found that the agency’s computers were fully operational only 60 percent of the time because of outdated systems and a reliance on a computer mainframe that dates to the 1980s, according to Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn, in an ABC News report. “We have here a premiere law enforcement organization in our country which is responsible for the security of the president and the vice president and other officials of our government, and they have to have better IT than they have,” Lieberman, who is chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, said in the ABC News report. Sources reportedly tell ABC News that the Secret Service was so plagued by computer problems that the agency invited the National Security Agency to formally review its information technology systems. According to the ABC News Report, the Secret Service’s databases are outdated and users are at times unable to conduct searches from one system to another.

Desiree Rogers resigns from White House post

White House social secretary Desiree Rogers is leaving office after coming under criticism for her handling of President Barack Obama’s first state dinner. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama released a statement Friday thanking Rogers for the “terrific job” she’s done and saying they would miss her. Rogers is a friend of the couple’s from their days in Chicago. As social secretary, she was responsible for the November state dinner, which a northern Virginia couple managed to crash without an invitation, despite extensive security. Rogers later acknowledged not having staff from her office at security checkpoints to help identify guests. Lawmakers demanded that she testify to Congress about her handling of the event. The White House would not allow her to appear.

But staff at the for-profit parks in Orlando, San Antonio and San Diego won’t get back in the water with the hulking ocean predators until SeaWorld and a panel of outside experts complete a top-to-bottom review of how the company handles orcas. “We have created an extraordinary opportunity for people to get an up-close, personal experience and be inspired and connect with marine life in a way they cannot do anywhere else in the world,” Atchison said as orcas swam behind him on the other side of an underwater window, “and for that we will make no apologies.” The timing of the killer whales’ return to performances reflects just what the sleek black-and-white mammals mean to SeaWorld, which the private equity firm The Blackstone Group bought last fall for around $2.7 billion from Anheuser-Busch InBev in a deal that included two Busch Gardens theme parks and several other attractions.

Johnny Depp smells like a pirate

Johnny Depp and his wife, French supermodel Vanessa Paradis may look like a gorgeous couple on the outside, but sources who work with the two tell Fox News that they aren’t as clean as they sometimes appear. “Johnny usually smells because he rarely showers,” Fox News sources say. “He isn’t big on personal cleanliness and Vanessa isn’t much different. They found their perfect match in each other - it’s hard to be around them. Their personal hygiene is not their priority.” And while Johnny is known as a movie hunk and was

even named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive last year, sources say he takes pains to cultivate a different image in his personal life reports Fox News. As for his gorgeous girlfriend, she is just like her man, according to a Fox News source “Vanessa is the furthest thing from a supermodel every second that she isn’t on a big photo shoot. No makeup and unruly hair - she’s a bit of a mess normally.”

Pan Am bomber fan still mad at Switzerland

After two centuries of neutrality, Switzerland found itself in a bizarre and unprecedented situation Friday, facing a would-be “holy war” announced by Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi. The Swiss government declined to comment on Gadhafi’s latest salvo in a simmering diplomatic saga stemming from the Geneva police’s 2008 arrest and brief detainment of his son, Hannibal, and his wife for allegedly beating up their servants. Although Gadhafi’s jihad declaration late Thursday was widely viewed as a stunt by a leader given to outlandish behavior, the danger was difficult to dismiss in an era of Islamic-Western foment over issues ranging from headdress bans in Europe to faraway Middle East disputes, Iran’s nuclear program and Nordic newspapers’ caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad. Analysts urged caution and Swiss citizens and politicians expressed alarm that a nation which managed to steer clear of direct involvement in the world wars and other bloody European conflicts was being dragged into an increasingly messy — if still nonviolent — conflict with an unpredictable government. “You never know with crazies,” nationalist lawmaker Oskar Freysinger told The Associated Press. “I can imagine that this won’t be taken very seriously. But nevertheless, it’s the head of a state making a declaration of war against Switzerland.”

A judge on Thursday approved child support for Bristol Palin and set a trial date to force the issue along, while urging her and the father of her son to work out a resolution outside of the courtroom. Judge Kari C. Kristiansen encouraged Palin and Levi Johnston, both 19, to work with a judge who specializes in such matters in a settlement conference and not go to trial. She set a court date for Sept. JOHNSON 23-24. Kristiansen approved child support for Palin retroactive to the day the child was born. That amount still needs to be determined. Bristol Palin is seeking nearly $1,700 a month in child support to care for their son, Tripp. She had asked for retroactive payments to the boy’s birth, or $19,232 total. That does not include $4,400 Johnston has already paid in child support.

SCHLEPER FASTEST SLALOM IN NORTH AMERICA turned my bib around,” Schleper said. “It was a nice distraction up there though, I tried to stop the bleeding and get refocused for my run.”

 Schleper received five stitches in her chin between runs and went out fighting in the second run. She was in the lead by four tenths, then hit a rut and got bounced off line. “I would have liked to see how my time would have held up without that mistake, because I think I would have had a shot,” she said. Unlike her crash Wednesday in the giant slalom, Vonn was off the pace before straddling a gate, resulting in a DNF. “I came out of the starting gate charging. But I haven’t been skiing a lot of slalom and hit some mashed potato snow, and it was over before I knew it,” she said. “Even though today and the GS wasn’t a success, I’m happy with the way my Olympics have gone. I have a gold in the downhill and a bronze in super G and I couldn’t ask for any more.”

 Hailey Duke was 30th in her Olympic debut, feeling shaky on her first run but rebounded with a performance she could be proud of. Park City’s Megan McJames wheeled off course in the second run and did not finish, but will leave Vancouver with positive big race experience. “It was a little rough the first run, but second run I skied a lot better,” Duke said. “It felt a lot better and I had a big smile on my face when I came across the finish line.”

 The men’s slalom kicks off with the first run Saturday at 11 a.m., with the final at 1:45 p.m. Representing the U.S. is Bode Miller, Ted Ligety, Jimmy Cochran and Nolan Kasper. – The U.S. Ski Team Press Office contributed to this report
