If you called down to Central Casting for an honest-to-Stetson cowboy, they’d send you back Randy Campbell. OK, technically Campbell was a sheep rancher, but look at this guy. He’s the real deal. When Campbell died, a little of the West went with him. Randy Dean Campbell, 58, passed away at home in Loma, Colorado. A Celebration Of Life is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday at the Strayhorn Grill, Western Slope Cattlemen’s Auction Market in Loma. Just drive west of Grand Junction, take the Loma exit and listen for the laughing sounds of stories being swapped. You know that huge bunch of sheep in Wolcott? They’re Randy’s. In the early 1980s, Randy moved to Wolcott to be the sheep foreman for Chris Jouflas. He managed the summer herds on Red & White Mountain and in the winter near the Utah/Colorado state line. Randy apprenticed cooking whole lambs Greek Style with both Chris Jouflas and Pete Clathis, so he learned from the best. If you’ve never had any of Randy’s roasted lambs, you’ve wasted a serious part of your life. And you’re not nearly involved enough in your community because Randy became famous all over this spiral arm of the universe for cooking lambs for a variety of organizations and events. Randy was born December 6, 1951 to Thelma Rose (Freel) and Ervin George Campbell in Grand Junction. Randy lived in Norwood, Colorado, with his family until the seventh grade. He learned to work early in life, on the family sheep ranch beside his father and grandfather, Avery Campbell. The Campbell Brothers summered near Ophir, Colorado(near the current Matterhorn District Forest Service Office) and wintered, then lambed, near Redvale, Colorado. Back then, you’d often find Randy trailing their herds down the highway from Redvale to Ophir. In 1965, Randy’s family moved to Olathe, Colorado, where his father managed the Hughes Bros. Sheep Ranch, often running 10,000 ewes. Randy continued to work with his father, running docking crews, lambing, herding sheep and tending camps in the high country near Silverton, Colorado. He attended high school at Olathe High School and graduated from Nucla High School in 1970. After high school, he left the sheep industry for a couple years and worked as a surveyor at Silverthorne. But his ranching roots ran deep and in the mid to late 1970s, managed the sheep for Jack Price of Shinn Park Ranch. It was in the American Flats Area above Silverton, Colorado, where he met his future wife, Julie Hansmire in 1980. Julie was working for the Bureau of Land Management, monitoring vegetation on the high country sheep permits. Randy had the very good sense to marry Julie August 20, 1983 at the United Methodist Church in Gypsum.

Sheep rancher Randy Campbell, 1951-2010

Randy and Julie purchased ewes and grazing permits on the White River National Forest. They bought the Cottonwood Ranch (north of Cisco, Utah) in 1989, which became the winter home base for livestock and their family. Randy and family moved with their livestock between Eagle County each summer and to Utah in the winter. Randy loved horses and his favorite days were riding the range. He was skillful at evaluating new ranges and determining and adjusting grazing plans. He always had a solid string of riding horses and pack string of mules. Family vacations for 20 years were with a pack string exploring the Flat Tops or other mountainous areas. Randy cherished his family and many friends. He was known for his honest analysis of any situation. Randy joined the Round up Riders of the Rockies in 2005 and rode with the Riders for four years. The organization is dedicated to the perpetuation of the Western tradition associated with the American cowboy and his horse. In 2007, he received the Camp Tender Award from the Colorado Wool Growers Association for outstanding contributions for the preservation and advancement of the Colorado Sheep Industry. He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Julie Ann Hansmire; son Lynn Hansmire Campbell (age 21); and daughter Clay Hansmire Campbell(age 16); his mother Thelma; sisters: Leatha Maurantonio (Mike), Patti Grafmyer (Michael), Twyla Campbell, and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father, Ervin, and sister, Tonnie. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Randy’s name to the Heritage & Trails Foundation, Inc., c/o Roundup Riders of the Rockies, 1720 S. Bellaire St., Suite 300, Denver, CO 80222-4316.

Bill to allow CMC bachelor’s degrees passes House education committee Senate Bill 101 now moves to Colo. House of Representatives for consideration Following a unanimous vote, the education committee of Colorado’s House of Representatives voted yesterday in support of SB 101, which would allow Colorado Mountain College to offer up to five bachelor’s degrees. The next step is for the bill to continue on for consideration in the full House. If successful there, the bill would go on to the governor for his signature. A date has not yet been set for introduction of the bill into the full House. The bill has already been passed by the Senate on a vote of 33-1-1. Testifying before the education committee Thursday afternoon, Colorado Mountain College President Dr. Stan

Jensen told members that their support would mean they would be increasing rural accessibility to higher education, resulting in greater numbers of college graduates. CMC administrators have said they especially want to reach community members who are place-bound, who would otherwise not go on to complete a four-year degree. “Many have told me, and our surveys indicate, they will complete their bachelor’s degree if we provide it in their own hometown,” Jensen told the committee. Should SB 101 receive full legislative approval, the college would need to secure approval from the Colorado Commission on Higher Education and

the college’s accrediting body, the North Central Association of the Higher Learning Commission. Jensen told education committee members that the college has received preliminary approval from its accrediting body, and is working steadily toward meeting any necessary requirements. Following consultations with the Colorado Department of Higher Education, the final wording on the bill as passed by the Senate earlier this month had been adjusted slightly. The bill clarifies that the college needs to have individual degrees approved by the CCHE, as is currently the case with associate degrees CMC offers. The bill also includes a list


of standards the college must meet for CCHE approval, and a requirement that the college appeal to the legislature for permission to offer more than five degrees. If all approvals are received, the college hopes to offer up to five upper-division classes in the fall of 2010, and to begin offering bachelor’s programs the following summer. Based on preliminary results from surveys of students, business owners and community members within the college’s district, the greatest demand is for business degrees related to the resort and hospitality businesses prevalent in the region, as well as teacher education.

A Gypsum ganjapreneur arrested for growing hundreds of marijuana plants was trying to sell the illegal ones to a local medical marijuana dispensary, according to Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reports. When Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigators raided Alvaro Medinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residence earlier this week, they found 263 marijuana plants. Medina is a licensed caregiver with four clients. That entitles him to grow 24 plants, six for each client, under current state law. So, the law enforcement officers left Medinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24 legal plants in the house and hauled Medina and Adam Coleman off to the Eagle County Crossbar Hotel. Apparently, that means his four clients are free to help themselves to their medicine in the now-unoccupied house â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at 90 Beacon Court, Gypsum. And because the cause of medicinal marijuana is only offer relief to those suffering from a chronic condition, no one whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not one of Medinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s client would think of depriving those clients of their medications. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re certain of this. Anyway, Medina was apparently so enthusiastic about potâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healing powers that he cultivated 239 additional pot plants. The narcotics cops who busted him were so enchanted with his horticultural horde that they kept it for evidence, leaving behind his 24 legal plants in an unoccupied house. Medina had contacted a local dispensary, trying to market those 239 illegal plants, Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office reports said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24 legal plants and 239 illegal plants, for a total of 263. Even those suffering from a chronic condition curable only by medical marijuana can do that math. Along with all that dope, deputies found four to five pounds of hashish, Psilocybin mushrooms and a couple shotguns. The drugs have a street value of about $30,000: $20,000 for the marijuana and $10,000 for the hashish. The magic mushrooms are pretty much a player to

How they found it Marijuana needs constantly circulating air, and Medina vented his 263 plants through the heat pump outside the house. That heat pump sucked the marijuanasmelling air that from inside Medinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, and blew it outside to where the non-marijuana-growing public could smell it. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like a herd of Dead Heads was genuflecting around the heat pump, inhaling deeply from the exhaust. But it was still pretty apparent. After the two men were in custody, the curious cops stepped outside to look around and noticed that the electric meter was spinning like a gyroscope. Because they are highly trained professionals who scour crime scenes for these sorts of clues, they surmised that the electric can opener would not account for that level of electricity consumption, no matter how many cans of beanie weenies the two ate when they got the munchies. Prior to obtaining their search warrant, officers also tracked down data to see if Medina and Coleman were using an abnormal amount of water. Turns out that, unless they were opening a dog-washing business to service the entire field of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Iditarod, they were. Since the deputies had gone to all the trouble of getting a search warrant that entitled them to scour the entire residence, they decided to have a look around. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when they found the hashish and guns. Marijuana sells for about $3,500 a pound and one plant yields about one pound of pot. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to do your own arithmetic. If your answer isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly the same at the officersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, remember that pot is not an exact science. Medina has been unemployed for about five months, but was able to cover the $1,800 monthly rent, the utilities and everything else that has to be purchased in sustaining life its ownself. Medina faces felony charges for cultivation, distribution and possession. His roommate, Adam Coleman, faces possession and distribution charges.

Vail Police: Lift ticket fraud down this season Cops say cooperation with Vail Mountain led to decline Vail Police announced yesterday that they have seen a reduction in ski pass fraud this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only 48 people have been citied for deceptive use as of mid-March, compared to 121 citations by this time last year,â&#x20AC;? Vail Detective Sgt. Christopher Botkins wrote in a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a significant reduction in deceptives this year, we expect the number to rise over the next few weeks, which is

typical for the end of the season.â&#x20AC;? The Vail PD says theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re once again warning skiers and riders to avoid the temptation of borrowing a ski pass to save on the cost of a lift ticket, as the department is working together with Vail Mountain to identify and prosecute fraudulent pass users. Once fraudulent use is identified, suspects are either issued a summons into court and released or

arrested, depending on the circumstances. The charge carries a maximum fine of up to $999 and/or 180 days in jail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s encouraging to see such a reduction in the number of deceptives this year,â&#x20AC;? said Botkins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means all our efforts in public education and enforcement last year, and this year, are working.â&#x20AC;?

Junction skiers caught in avalanche Authorities say two cross-country skiers were caught in an avalanche east of Grand Junction and one of them may have broken his legs. The Mesa County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office says 35-year-old Seth Anderson and 40-year-old Ann Driggers were taken to St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital Wednesday evening after being swept by an avalanche in the afternoon in the

Grand Mesa National Forest. Sheriff spokeswoman Heather Benjamin says Anderson was injured but Driggers was not. Benjamin says the skiers used a cell phone to call emergency crews. A search and rescue crew and a helicopter were dispatched to help.

Minturn businesses are expanding to accommodate their unique concepts. Kirby Cosmoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BBQ bar is set to add an Edwards location to its operation in April, said Owner Mark Tamberino, adding the expansion has been building for quite some time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we wanted to do other locations, but we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure what the right time was,â&#x20AC;? Tamberino said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw this as an opportunity to do a different marketâ&#x20AC;Śweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always looking for different ventures.â&#x20AC;? Tamberino said Cosmoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new location may open as soon as mid-April in the Edwards Corner, right next to Marble Slab. Kirby Cosmoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was born as JBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BBQ in South Carolina. The Tamberino family added the name and their own flair to the Minturn location roughly three years ago. The local barbeque spot has its own signature sauce, created 20 years ago and modeled after the red sauces of the Carolinas. Tamberino also included pizzas with their own twist on the menu. Pizza sauces include â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Min-urn Marinara,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;JBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BBQ Sauce,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Red Hot Wing Sauce.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; You can also top them with Kirbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own barbeque chicken, pork or beef brisket. Their slow cooked pork sandwiches start at $7. Tamberino recommends the Carolina Pulled Pork sandwich, which comes smothered in cole slaw for $7.25.

Special Tonight

Vail Gallery to feature works of Robert Lougheed By Dawn Witlin Special to the Mountaineer The Clagett/Rey Gallery of Vail will present the works of the late artist Robert Lougheed at two special events this week. From 6 to 8 p.m. tonight, the gallery will unveil its new showcase of more than 100 works by Lougheed, spanning the 50 year career of the artist from 1910 to 1982. At 5:30 p.m. Saturday, a Bookworm of Edwards event will introduce a new book featuring his work. Several years ago, the gallery purchased Lougheedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire estate in the interest of preserving his legacy within a museum named â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lougheed Studio at Claggett/Rey Gallery.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;When (Lougheed) passed away in 1982, he was in his heyday,â&#x20AC;? said Claire Thayer, Lougheed Studio project director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For 25 years, most of his stuff hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been purchasedâ&#x20AC;Śweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to bring him back to forefront.â&#x20AC;? Among his many works, the gallery will feature pieces by the burgeoning artist painted in the 40s and 50s in Quebec, 60s and 70s in the Southwest and Western Canada, and in his final years in Hawaii, France and England. Born in Canada, Lougheed developed a passion for painting wildlife at a young age while growing up on a farm, according to the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Later in life, Lougheed studied with Frank Dumond at the Art Studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s League, who inspired his dedication to the principles of plein air painting or â&#x20AC;&#x153;impressionistic realism.â&#x20AC;? The museum notes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lougheedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s painting from that point on incorporated the plein air ideals of painting light on shapes, defining only one moment of activity in the composition, and sincerely observing how distance and atmo-

sphere affect a subject.â&#x20AC;? Lougheed is quoted by the museum as saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a realist in painting. I know that a serious composition must include those emotional and spiritual qualities extolled by the professional art theorist; like every other artist, I also know that accurate reporting of detail does not, of itself, constitute art; but unlike other theorists, I cannot feel that realistic treatment need detract from my reasonable or sensible idea.â&#x20AC;? The Clagett/Rey Gallery proudly represents three artists who have personally studied under Lougheed: Wayne Wolfe, John Moyers and Terri Kelly Moyers. Tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibit unveiling will also feature oil paintings by Wolfe, who studied with Lougheed in Santa Fe in the 1970s.

By Geoff Mintz Casey Puckett can add winner of the American Ski Classic GS to his list of ski race accomplishments. Puckett, an Aspen local, is a fivetime Olympian and six-time national champion. He raced among some great ski racing legends like Billy Kid, the Mahre brothers, Marc Giradelli, Franz Klammer, Daron Rahlves, Fritz Strobl and more. 34 men and women Legends have accounted for a total of 22 Olympic medals, 41 World Championships medals, 248 individual World Cup wins, 8 World Cup overall crowns and 20 World Cup discipline titles. The men’s event, which is handicapped to make the race more competitive for the younger guys, came down to the wire with Puckett beating out Steve Mahre by .08 seconds. Puckett enjoyed a long career on the U.S. Alpine Team staring in 1991 when he made his World Cup debut through to his retirement from alpine racing in 2002. He went to Vancouver this year as an Olympian competing in the ski-cross, which he says is a great way to keep the competitive juices going. For the women, 2001 and 2003 downhill champion and Olympic medalist Isolde Kostner of Italy squeaked out American Pam Fletcher.

You, Only Better


Agassi drug charges dropped The International Tennis Federation officials have closed the book on Andre Agassi’s drug revelations. President Francesco Ricci Bitti told The Associated Press on Wednesday that despite appeals from the World Anti-Doping Agency, the statute of limitations in the case expired long ago and no retroactive punishment was possible. In Agassi’s recently published autobiography, “Open,” he wrote that he took crystal meth in 1997 and lied to the ATP to avoid a suspension after failing a doping test.

The statute of limitations in the case was eight years. In a separate Agassi related issue, the retired superstar apologized earlier this week for poking fun at Pete Sampras at a charity match. Agassi and Sampras were wearing microphones during the match, and the crowd at Indian Wells Tennis Garden in California could hear an exchange that started lighthearted but turned testy when Agassi zinged Sampras for being a poor tipper.

Rangers owners retain Washington Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks said Thursday there will be “zero tolerance going forward” for manager Ron Washington in regards to drug use after Washington admitted Wednesday to using cocaine during the 2009 season. Washington agreed to submit additional testing by Major League Baseball in the future. He also apologized to the team and to fans. “I’m comfortable it’s not going to happen again, And if it does, there will be zero tolerance,” Hicks said to ESPN Thursday. Washington offered to resign as soon as he was randomly selected for a drug test by MLB. Hicks said club president Nolan Ryan and general manager Jon Daniels recommended retaining the manager even after the positive drug test, and Hicks supported the decision.

A year ago there was real concern that the U.S. economy might fall into what economists consider a depression, reports John Zogby of Forbes. That type of depression did not happen, but our polling finds strong evidence of another kind of depression: a loss of faith in the American Dream, according to Forbes. “Zogby International has been testing the public’s beliefs and definitions of the American Dream for more than a decade,” Forbes latest Zogby Interactive survey. “Shows a significant decline in believers from a year ago and an even bigger drop from 10 years ago.” On the basic question of whether “it is possible for you and your family to achieve the American Dream,” 57% said it is possible in a Feb. 17 Forbes’ Zogby Interactive poll of 2,031 likely voters. “That is a 10-point drop from a similar survey conducted immediately after the 2008 elections, When we asked that question in July 2001, less than two months before the Sept. 11 attacks, 76% said they could achieve it,” writes Zogby.

Health care vote expected Sunday

Historic health care change in the balance, Democrats plowed fresh billions into insurance subsidies for consumers on Thursday and added a $250 rebate for seniors facing high prescription drugs, last-minute sweeteners to sweeping $940 billion legislation headed for a climactic weekend vote this Sunday. President Barack Obama scuttled an Asian trip in favor of last-minute lobbying at the White House on his signature issue, playing host to a procession of wavering Democrats seeking favors. “It will make history and we will make progress by passing this legislation,” predicted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as Democrats unveiled final alterations to a bill — 16 tumultuous months in the making — meant to expand health care to 32 million uninsured, bar the insurance industry from denying coverage on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions, and trim federal deficits by an estimated $138 billion over the next decade.

Their own private Idaho

Idaho took the lead in a growing, nationwide fight

against health care overhaul Wednesday when its governor became the first to sign a measure requiring the state attorney general to sue the federal government if residents are forced to buy health insurance. Similar legislation is pending in 37 other states. Constitutional law experts say the movement is mostly symbolic because federal laws supersede those of the states. But the state measures reflect a growing frustration with President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The proposal would cover some 30 million uninsured people, end insurance practices such as denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions, require almost all Americans to get coverage by law, and try to slow the cost of medical care nationwide.

Delta smelt may become victim of Congressional vote

The water spigots are back on, at least temporarily, in California’s Central Valley. Turned off to protect a tiny fish, they happen to be in the districts of two congressmen “undecided” on health care reform, reports Investors Business Daily. “One could chalk it up to good fortune or just good constituent service,” reports the Business Daily. “But in the middle of a contentious health care debate marked by Cornhusker Kickbacks and Louisiana Purchases, we may be forgiven if we find an announcement by the Department of the Interior regarding California’s water supply a tad too coincidental.” According to the Business Daily, the 2-inch-long delta smelt, a fish destined for the Endangered Species list, plugs the drains releasing water to the farmlands, so to protect it, environmentalists filed lawsuits and the decision was made to restrict the water flow and safeguard the smelt, even if that meant turning some of America’s best farmland into the functional equivalent of Death Valley.

Russia set to drill off our shores

The Obama administration is poised to ban offshore oil drilling on the outer continental shelf until 2012 or beyond, writes the Washington Times. “Meanwhile, Russia is making a bold strategic leap to begin drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico,” writes the Times. “While the United States attempts to shift gears to alternative fuels to battle the purported evils of carbon emissions, Russia will erect oil derricks off the Cuban coast.” According to the Times, Russia more sensibly views energy primarily as a strategic resource. Energy is critical to Russia’s economy, as fuel and as a source of profit through export. “Russia also has used energy as a coercive diplomatic tool, shutting off natural gas piped to Eastern Europe in the middle of winter to make a point about how dependent the countries are that do business with the Russians,” writes the Times. “Now Russia is using oil exploration to establish a new pres-

Immigration moving to front burner

President Barack Obama, facing criticism from advocates of immigration reform, pledged Thursday â&#x20AC;&#x153;to do everything in my powerâ&#x20AC;? to get immigration legislation moving in Congress this year. Obama said work on an immigration bill should move forward based on an outline released Thursday by Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A critical next step will be to translate their framework into a legislative proposal, and for Congress to act at the earliest possible opportunity,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. The outline calls for illegal immigrants to admit they broke the law, pay a fine and back taxes, and perform community service if they want to get on a pathway to legal status. They would also be required to pass background checks and be proficient in English.

Boxer fights for Senate life

California Sen. Barbara Boxerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s re-election campaign is shaping up as the fight of her political career, according to a Field Poll released Thursday. The survey shows a statistical tie in hypothetical matchups between the three-term Democratic incumbent and two of her potential Republican challengers, former congressman Tom Campbell and former Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina. Boxer has won by progressively larger margins in each of her previous re-election campaigns, but this year faces strong headwinds from the recession, which has left California with one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. The poll shows 51 percent of likely voters have an unfavorable opinion of Boxer while just 38 percent have a favorable one.

Clinton to meet Netanyahu in D.C. next week

Hoping to diffuse a fight between friends, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton agreed Thursday to meet next week in Washington to confront face to face an embarrassing dispute over Israeli land claims. The Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special envoy for Mideast peace, George Mitchell, prepared to return to the region for talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders. Netanyahu called Clinton on Thursday. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley declined to provide details of the conversation, which he described as the Israeli prime ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to Clintonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call last week in which she harshly criticized Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement of additional Jewish settlement housing in east Jerusalem.

Clinton reacts to RussianIranian involvement

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and her Russian counterpart clashed openly Thursday over the planned launch this summer of Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first, Russianbuilt nuclear power plant, highlighting a split in views over how to steer Iran away from nuclear weapons. Clinton did not criticize the long-delayed project directly but said the Obama administration is opposed to the timing of the nuclear plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s startup. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin announced the summer startup plans on Thursday, shortly after Clinton arrived for a two-day visit. The nuclear plant is an example of Russian-Iranian economic ties and technical cooperation, on terms that have long made the United States uncomfortable. It was a background issue during a difficult period in U.S.Russian relations last year and in the ongoing U.S.-led effort to bring new United Nations economic penalties against Iran over suspicions that part of its nuclear program is aimed at building a bomb.

Boyfriend sues for Gaga-mony

A songwriter and music producer says in a New York City lawsuit pop star Lady Gaga squeezed him out of her lucrative career after he co-wrote some of her songs, came up with her stage name and helped get her record deal. Rob Fusari filed a $35 million lawsuit Wednesday against the Grammy Award-winning singer. He says his protege and former girlfriend ditched him as her career soared. Fusariâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawsuit says he has credits on such hits as Will Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild, Wild Westâ&#x20AC;? and Destinyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bootylicious.â&#x20AC;?

Fess Parker dead at 85

Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone star Fess Parker died today at age 85. Parker died of natural causes at his Santa Ynez home near the Fess Parker Winery, said a family spokeswoman. His death comes on the 84th birthday of his wife of 50 years, Marcella. Parker became every baby boomerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idol in the 1950s when he starred as frontiersman Davy Crockett. Kids grabbed up lunch boxes, toy Old Betsy rifles, buckskin shirts, and trademark fur caps. The series theme song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ballad of Davy Crockett,â&#x20AC;? became a hit with its line â&#x20AC;&#x153;Born on a mountaintop in Tennessee.â&#x20AC;? Parker also played Daniel Boone in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s television show. He later became a developer along Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central coast and grew grapes for prize-winning wines.

ABC News hires Amanpour for This Week

to the point that slightly more Americans now disapprove than approve of his performance in office, according to Gallup. The new low ratings come during a week in which the White House and Democratic congressional leaders are working to convince wavering House Democrats to support healthcare reform, which they hope to pass using a series of parliamentary maneuvers in the House of Representatives and Senate, reports Gallup. Americans hold Congress in far less esteem than they do the president -- 16% approve and 80% disapprove of the job Congress is doing, according to the latest update from a March 4-7 Gallup poll.

Junkies organize in San Francisco

ABC News has hired Christiane Amanpour, one of CNNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-known personalities for her hard-nosed reporting from war zones over the past two decades, to host its Sunday morning political talk show starting this summer. She replaces George Stephanopoulos, who left the show in December to take over as co-host of ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Morning America.â&#x20AC;? An Iran-born journalist whose expertise is in international stories, and who has complained about the lack of overseas news in the American news media, would seem an unusual choice for a job that has largely been devoted to discussions of political and domestic news. That also may represent a real opportunity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With Christiane, we have the opportunity to provide our audiences with something different on Sunday mornings,â&#x20AC;? ABC News President David Westin said. Amanpour, 52, said she was exhilarated by the challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a once-in-a-lifetime and a unique opportunity,â&#x20AC;? she said.

San Francisco Weekly reports that San Francisco, for those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, is a union town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And now the city has one more group hoping to push for its interests via strength in numbers: Drug user,â&#x20AC;? writes Weekly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A San Francisco Drug-Users Union, operated by the Harm Reduction Therapy Center is now on the scene, bankrolled by a one-year grant: a $35,000 shot in the arm from the Drug Policy Alliance.â&#x20AC;? SF Weekly was unable to reach the unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sole paid employee , Alexandra Goldman, in the report, but it did reach her unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefactor, Laura Thomas, the San Francisco-based deputy state director of the Drug Policy Alliance. Thomas stressed to Weekly that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not setting the agenda for the San Francisco Drug-Users Union. But she did note in Weeklyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report that drug-user unions in Vancouver and New York City have â&#x20AC;&#x153;essentially served the same purpose as the Coalition on Homelessness does. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an organization of a set of folks who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a say in policies that have a direct impact on them.â&#x20AC;?

ABC News paid $200,000 to Casey Anthony

Santa Claus linked to Irish bank robber

New evidence was released Thursday in the Casey Anthony murder case, including the amount of money she received from a television network, as well as conversations she had with other inmates, reports Fox News. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anthonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense team told Judge Stan Strickland that she no longer has funds to pay for the trial. Her attorney testified ABC News paid Casey Anthony $200,000, but that those funds are now gone,â&#x20AC;? reports Fox News. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strickland is deciding whether to approve the declaration of Anthony being indigent, which would make the state pay for her defense.â&#x20AC;? A transcript of conversations Anthony had with a fellow inmate was also released reports Fox News, stating that â&#x20AC;&#x153;an Orange County Corrections officer may have facilitated the communication once the friendship had begun.â&#x20AC;? Casey Anthony remains jailed on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of her daughter, Caylee, who was last seen in June of 2008, reports Fox News.

Latest Gallup poll

The man who staged a St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day bank robbery in a leprechaun costume and died during a police shootout also held up a bank three days before Christmas in a Santa suit, police said Thursday. Investigators in the Nashville suburb of Gallatin said information from the FBI linked David Christopher Cotton, 20, of Brentwood to the December robbery. FBI Supervisor Special Agent Scott Augenbaum told The Associated Press that investigators found a Santa suit at Cottonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, and that the suspect made similar comments during both robberies. The man police identified as the getaway driver, 20-year-old Western Kentucky University student Jonathan Ryan Skinner, also was killed. Police said they think Cotton shot himself to death as officers surrounded the two in a field after a car and foot chase. Patrol car video of the chase released Thursday shows one of the suspects leaning out of the passenger window of the getaway car and firing several shots at police on the street of a subdivision.

“She felt better today and said she was able to eat about a half a sandwich,” Mike Kloser said. “She said the course was really tough today and a lot of the skiers were crashing due to the conditions. But it seems that 13 is her lucky number this year, she wore that number at the US Olympic trials and has had four 13th place finishes this year on the World Cup.” Heidi finished 22nd overall on the World Cup this season. She also won the North American Cup (NorAm) overall Freestyle title after winning a dual mogul competition in Steamboat earlier this month. Eliza Outtrim of Steamboat Springs closed out the World Cup season in a big way, taking the win, which marked the first podium performance of her career. She was joined on the podium by teammate Heather McPhie of Bozeman, who was third. “It’s pretty incredible. I honestly couldn’t believe it. It was so surreal for so long,” Outtrim said. “I really did not expect this at all. I was really just hoping to get a top five, so this win is unbelievable.”

 On a brand new World Cup course, Outtrim said conditions improved throughout the day, enabling her to have her best run of the year. “The course got better throughout the day. We had bad weather and poor visibility in the morning, and by the afternoon it had cleared out and the snow got better,” Outtrim said. “I came off the top air and went fairly large, and from there I tried skiing fast and I nailed my bottom air. They were probably my best two jumps this year.”

 Once she was at the bottom, Outtrim still had to wait for teammate and Olympic gold medalist Hannah Kearney to compete before she knew the result. “When I was watching Hannah come

down I got kind of teary-eyed even thinking that I was going to get second. But, Hannah had trouble on the bottom and they announced her in fourth,” Outtrim said. “It was so unexpected. All my teammates are skiing so well and they’ve had such a great year. As a competitor you should always have the win in your mind, but I didn’t reallyentrees have it $10 select in my mind.”

 The U.S. women have packed the podium on a regular basis, with consistent strong results that helped put the USA on top winning the Freestyle World Cup Nation’s Cup title. The freestylers now head to Squaw Valley in California to close out the year at the Sprint U.S. Freestyle Championships March 26-28. – The U.S. Ski Team Press Office contributed to this report
