Passion for more than just fashion VVMC Volunteer Corps event packs 400 into Vail Marriott, helps fund cancer center By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Vail Marriott was packed yesterday with people who have a passion for fashion. The Vail Valley Medical Center’s Volunteer Corps spring fashion show and luncheon put hundreds of people together for a great cause and some education, but mostly it was a great time. This was their 23rd event.


Lots of local women released their inner goddess, walking the runway wearing fashions designed by some of the giants of the fashion industry. It’s good to work a lot for a great cause, like the Shaw Regional Cancer Center. It’s also good to strut a little. “The volunteer community in this valley is second to none,” Joe Deuschle, with Shaw Regional Cancer Center. “The quality of service and care at this center could not exist in a community

this size without this type of support.” The models The 18 models were all local women. You always knew they were this breathtaking; you just needed to be reminded. They were adorned in Squash Blossom jewelry, fashions from Lacy’s and Luca Bruno, and Merle Norman cosmetics. “It’s people coming together [See PASSION, page 23]

‘Fuel’ playing at Vilar tonight Sundance Festival’s 2010 Best Documentary Audience Award winner comes to Beaver Creek Playing tonight at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek, FUEL is a comprehensive and entertaining look at energy in America: a history of where we have been, our present predicament and a solution to our dependence on foreign oil. “Fuel is a vital, superbly assembled documentary‌ doesn’t dwell on muckraking, however; it’s more focused on broadly inspiring viewers than preaching to the converted‌ Smartly animated interstitials, memorable archival material and a lively soundtrack round out the fast-paced proceedings,â€? says the LA Times. Josh Tickell’s stirring, radical and multi-award winning FUEL may be known by some as the “little energy documentary,â€? but in truth, it’s a powerful portrait of America’s overwhelming addiction to oil. Having been born and raised in one of the USA’s most oil producing regions, he saw first hand how the industry controls, deceives and damages the country, its people and the environment, and after one too many people he knew became sick, Tickell knew he just couldn’t idly stand by any longer. He decided to make a film, focusing both on the knowledge and insight he discovered, but also giving hope that solutions are at reach. A ‘regular guy’ who felt he could make a difference, he spent 11 years making his movie, showing himself – and others – that an individual can indeed make a difference. As first time director and narrator of the film, Tickell offers a virtual tour guide through the drama of fuel, the history, the politics, the mess that the world is in and the fascinating alternatives for a way out. In the movie, he interviews politicians, historians, professors and a sprinkling of activist celebrities, all of whom have their own take on one of the most important and pressing concerns of the modern era. Interviews with a wide range of environmentalists, policy makers and educators, along with such “greenâ€?

Minturn students will move to old BMHS site

Vail Mountaineer

Hand Cut Colorado Steaks, Wild Game and Fresh Seafood

Remodeled building to house K-8 school, opening in 2011 By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Minturn school students are being moved down the road to the old Battle Mountain High School site, the school board decided. The new school will house students in pre-kindergarten through 8th grade, and will combine Minturn students with Meadow Mountain Elementary School students. It’s a short move for Meadow Mountain students. Their school is right next door. The goal is to open the new school in the fall of 2011. The move leaves the Minturn Middle School largely vacant, except for the 58 students with the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy who share it. Unsettling for Minturn It’s unsettling for many Minturn residents. During a town council candidates forum Tuesday, council hopefuls kept coming back to the school during their discussions, saying they’re disappointed they lost their school, and that they’ll work with the school district to plan what’s next for the building. “It’s an emotional decision, it’s a tough decision. Our board is committed working with Minturn and other stakeholders, and the future of that building and land will be determined after those discussions,” said Brooke Skjonsby, school district communications director. “The building could stay open for another school use.” All kinds of possibilities are being bounced around. There’s expanding the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy to make it a boarding school, and attract students from around the country and the world. Moving the New America School from Gypsum to Minturn is another option. It’s a big building filled with possibilities. “We live in a community where you can have those kinds of creative discussions, Skjonsby said. Work together How soon the new school can open depends on the amount of money available to spend on it, said Dr. Sandra Smyser, superintendent of Eagle County schools. “We realize that many buildings and communities will be affected by the board’s decision,” Smyser said. “We remain committed to working closely with the Town of Minturn as we make plans for the best pos-

sible future use of the land and the building in Maloit Park.” The school board took its time coming to the decision. The vote followed a series of community meetings with town councils and boards, parents and staff members in the Minturn and Eagle-Vail areas. In fact, those discussions started when voters passed the $128 million bond in November 2006. “The board felt it was time to move forward with a decision in order to not keep schools and communities in limbo any longer,” Smyser said. The notion of a Pre-K-8 Expeditionary Learning school has generated excitement, Smyser said. Money matters The school is looking at $4 million in budget cuts over the next couple years, a combination of lower property tax projections and cuts in state funding. Paying for the comes down to capital funding and operations funding, Smyser said. By law, capital funding can only be used for one-time capital expenses, things like construction projects and remodeling. Capital money cannot be used for continuous operational expenses, such as salaries and benefits. Education is a labor intensive business, and a vast majority of the district’s budget pays personnel. “Revenue shortfalls from the state are causing us to cut from the operational fund,” Smyser said. “At the same time, we are using the remaining bond dollars to remodel the Dowd Junction Site. The savings that will result by combining these two schools are in the operational budget and can then be used to avoid additional cuts in the future.”

Dominic Lalli of the Motet fronts concert in Village tonight By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer Dominic Lalli, producer and saxophone player for Boulder jam band the Motet, is not afraid to try new things. Big Gigantic is his latest project that showcases an array of gripping composition, combining elements of a DJ and a live band setup. Along with drummer Jeremy Salken, Big Gigantic “flavors the electronic music scene with powerful sax solos and soulful synth lines on top of super hot beats,” the band says. “It’s pretty much just me and a drummer; I’m pretty much DJing. But I’m originally a sax player; I still am a sax player,” Lalli said in a interview with the Mountaineer this fall. “So, I’m trying to bring some of that live band, jamming element into it as well. We’re trying to mix that live band sound in with the DJing.” Big Gigantic has opened for the Disco Biscuits in New York City and STS9 in Denver for their New Year’s show. Lalli also made a guest appearance with STS9, sitting in with them for a few songs last month. “I started this project a little over a year ago. The Motet has been getting a little more into the electronic thing. We wanted to explore that who world a little more,” Lalli explains. Lalli said he started writing more electronic stuff, and eventually wanted to get a band together.

Inventor of the stage dive comes to town Ska band Fishbone celebrating 25 years of diverse sound, plays Agave tonight Legendary for pioneering the third wave of American Ska/Rock fusion, Fishbone first gained attention in the mid-eighties with their live concerts, earning a reputation as one of the most diverse bands in the alternative rock genre. Their unique stew of different styles mixed with hectic energy and pounding rhythms, was a huge influence on the funk/rock/ new-wave/metal/rap hybrid that would become popular in the 1990s. Outside of the immense talent and musical diversity, the band’s influence on pop-culture perme-

ates to this day as some music icons and historians credit frenetic frontman Angelo Moore as one of the first performers to “stage-dive� and “crowd surf� during legendary performances in the mid-eighties garage punk clubs. The band and their chaotic and colorful energy would incite some of the very first crowd surfing episodes in LA clubs, antics which have since become embedded as a staple of punk rock subculture. They play Agave tonight in Avon. Doors open at 9 p.m.; tickets are $15

Palmer: Woods should let reporters shoot Arnold Palmer was initially guarded about voicing his opinion on Tiger Woods, but now he has gone on record saying Woods should be more open with the media. “It’s up to him to do and say whatever he feels he needs to do to redeem the situation, put it in the proper place,â€? Palmer said. “My opinion, as I said ‌ I was going to keep to myself. But I suppose the best thing he could do would be open up and just let you guys shoot at him. And that’s just my thought.â€? Such advice comes from an 80-yearold, seven-time major champion who himself has been accused of infidelity. Palmer also said he expects Woods to contend at Augusta National, which will be his first competition in five months.

Medics worked for 90 minutes to revive cyclist

Organizers of the Cape Epic mountain bike race in South Africa said that medical staff worked for 90 minutes in an attempt to revive an Australian cyclist who died in his hotel room during the race. CPR was performed on James Williamson, 26, for an hour and a half after his riding partner Shaun Lewis could not wake him in his hotel room Tuesday morning. Race doctor Basil Bonner arrived four minutes after he received an emergency call, but neither he nor staff at the Ceres Private Hospital near Cape Town could save the cyclist, the statement said. Williamson, the editor of the Enduro mountain bike magazine, was competing James Williamson, above, was found dead in his hotel room in the eight-day, 800-kilometer (497-mile) Tuesday morning.

Eagle Community Market offe By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Admit it, you want a real tomato and you’d commit crimes against nature to get one. Not one of those Styrofoam ball spray painted with chemical dye so it resembles a tomato. You want the tomato you used to pick from your garden as a kid. Sally Writer has seven pounds of them at the Eagle Community Market – even as we speak. It’s no coincidence that seven pounds is the same weight as the average human heart, which you’ll learn when you bite into one because your heart will soar to the heavens and you’ll feel lighter – by about seven pounds. The Eagle Community Market is now open six days a week, Monday through Saturday, from 11 a.m-6 p.m. That makes it the only year-round organic community market in this spiral arm of the universe. Sally was at Osage Gardens in New Castle picking up an order when we tracked her down. She and partners Carole Onderdonk and Cynthia Lepthein travel all over the area to help small farmers stay afloat, buying fresh produce and making it available at the Eagle Community Market – thereby keeping people from committing felonious acts in their desperate search for fresh tomatoes, and other fresh stuff. They had a customer come in just last week, saying that when corporate America drowns from its selfinflicted tidal wave of scandal, greed and corruption, operations like the Eagle Community Market will be at the forefront of commerce as the world’s economy emerges from the rubble. Or something like that. OK, she was pretty much nuts, but if it happens, Sally, Carole and Cynthia will be at the forefront of the new order. And they’ll stay there as long as you keep pointing your wagon to the west and buying fresh tomatoes, and other stuff made locally. Agribusiness As sometimes happens, they weren’t looking for a

They told the guy to bring the veggies, and they were on their way. “We love doing it.

The delightful folks from Osage Gardens make honey – OK, their bees make the honey and they harvest it, but you get the idea. The Osage beekeeper will start a honey farm in Wolcott, just as soon as it’s warm enough to keep the bees happy. They have artisans selling their crafts - jewelers, a blacksmith/sculptor, photographers, potters. They have farm fresh eggs from local farmers and goat cheese made in Basalt.

long quest to lower the risk of global nuclear war. After long and trying negotiations, President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev are to sign the treaty in two weeks in Prague, once final technical details are worked out, officials in Washington and Moscow said. The accord is expected to cut the number of long-range nuclear weapons held by each side to about 1,500, and it raises hopes for further disarmament in the years ahead. The deal is seen as sealing an increased level of trust and cooperation between the U.S. and Russia, who possess the vast majority of the world’s nuclear arms and have labored under strained relations in recent years.

for their support for the health overhaul legislation that narrowly passed the House Sunday night. Since then it’s been criticized by anti-abortion groups who say it has no actual impact other than restating restrictions on abortion funding already in the law. Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., leader of the anti-abortion Democrats, insists that’s not the case, but lawmakers supporting abortion rights did not object to the order because they said it made no difference. Obama invited Stupak and other lawmakers to the Oval Office for the signing of the order but made no effort to draw attention to it, and no media were allowed in the room.

Chinese censorship reminded Google’s Russian founder of life in Soviet Union

The District of Colombian Gold

Behind Google Inc.’s dramatic decision to shutter its China-based search engine this week was co-founder Sergey Brin’s change of heart about the compromises required to do business in a land that was increasingly reminding him of his native Soviet Union, reports the Wall Street Journal. The beginning of that change came just after the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, Mr. Brin says in an interview with the Wall Street Journal about the China decision. As the glow of the Olympics faded, he told the Journal, the Chinese government began ratcheting up its Web censoring and interfering more with Google’s business. Around that time, he said to the Journal, the murky rules of doing business in China grew even murkier. “China was ever-present,” he said in the report. “One out of five meetings I attended had some component that applied to China in a different way than other countries.”

Saudis arrest 113 suspected terrorists

Saudi Arabia said today it has foiled several planned attacks on oil installations with the arrests of 113 suspected al-Qaeda militants in a months-long sweep. Many of the suspects had come to Saudi Arabia on visas to visit holy sites or by sneaking across its borders, but wanted to join and organize attacks with al-Qaeda, the Interior Ministry said. Those detained included 47 Saudis, 51 Yemenis, a Somali, an Eritrean, and a Bangladeshi. Separately, authorities arrested 12 people from two al-Qaeda cells originating across the border in Yemen. Those two cells were also in the preliminary stages of planning attacks on oil facilities, authorities said.

Obama signs executive order on federally funded abortions

President Barack Obama signed an executive order yesterday designed to ensure that no federal money can be used for elective abortions under the nation’s new health care legislation. The order had been demanded by a key bloc of anti-abortion Democrats as the price

Medical marijuana users in Washington, D.C. may not have to go to a clinic or a doctor’s office to get their dose; they may be able to go into their backyard, reports NBC Washington. “D.C. Council is thinking of adding a provision to the new medical marijuana bill that would allow some users to grow plants for their own use,” writes NBC. “They’d likely be limited to two plants per home.” “City leaders are still ironing out a number of details about legalized medical marijuana -- a decade-old issue that just recently became relevant,” reports NBC. “Washingtonians voted to legalize marijuana back in 1998, but it wasn’t until last December that Congress approved D.C.’s 2010 budget that allowed the District to legalize marijuana.”

California to legalize recreational marijuana

California voters will decide whether to legalize recreational marijuana use for adults, after the secretary of state yesterday certified the initiative for the November ballot. It would become the first state to legalize recreational marijuana if the proposition is approved. Marijuana use is legal for medicinal purposes in California and 14 other states, but the drug is illegal under federal law. Secretary of State Debra Bowen certified that the petitions seeking to place the question on the ballot had more than 433,971 valid voter signatures, the minimum number needed to qualify. If approved, the initiative would allow those 21 years and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana. Residents also could cultivate the plant in limited quantities. Local governments would decide whether to permit and tax marijuana sales.

20 more Israeli apartments approved in Jerusalem

The Jerusalem municipality has approved 20 new apartments for Jews in an Arab neighborhood of east Jerusalem, the city said Wednesday, in a move that could stir a new diplomatic crisis with the United States just as Israel’s leader is in Washington on a fence-mending visit. The announcement marked the second time this month that Israel has announced new construction in

the disputed section of the holy city during face-to-face meetings between top U.S. and Israeli officials. The Obama administration is seeking “clarification” of the latest building plan and continues to believe Israeli construction in Jerusalem is destructive to the Mideast peace process, said White House spokesman Tommy Vietor.

No White House photo op for Netanyahu

President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Tuesday in an unusual pair of low-profile meetings at the White House amid a serious dispute about settlement construction. In a break with custom that seemed linked to the crisis complicating U.S.-Israel relations, reporters were not invited to see them shake hands and begin their talks. It is highly unusual for a visiting ally not to be seen with the president, either for photographs or statements. At issue is Israel’s announcement two weeks ago, as Vice President Joe Biden visited, that it will build 1,600 new apartments in east Jerusalem, the largely Arab section of the disputed holy city. Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as the capital of a future state and have delayed new U.S.-sponsored peace talks over what they say is an Israeli land grab.

I Spy’s Robert Culp dead at 79

Robert Culp, the actor who teamed with Bill Cosby in the racially groundbreaking TV series “I Spy” and was Bob in the critically acclaimed sex comedy “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice,” died yesterday after collapsing outside his Hollywood home, his manager said. Culp was 79. Manager Hillard Elkins said the actor was on a walk when he fell. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead just before noon. The actor’s son was told he died of a heart attack, Elkins said, though police were unsure if the fall was medically related. Los Angeles poCULP lice Lt. Robert Binder said no foul play was suspected. Binder said a jogger found Culp, who apparently fell and struck his head. “I Spy” greatly advanced the careers of Culp and Cosby and forged a lifelong friendship. Cosby said Wednesday Culp was like an older brother to him.

Walking along a Saint Petersburg Street immersed in music, Milana Kashtanova, became the latest victim of falling icicles and ice blocks that have killed five people and injured 147 in the city following Russia’s coldest winter in 30 years, reports the Agence France Presse. According to the AFP, Kashtanova, 21, has been in a coma since February when she was hit by the ice, which was being cleared from a rooftop. “Milana was just walking past a building in the city center ...

5-day mail on the horizon

The Postal Service took the first formal step Wednesday toward cutting mail delivery to five days a week. The postal governing board agreed to ask the independent Postal Regulatory Commission for an opinion on dropping Saturday delivery. That request goes to the commission next week. Under the proposal, mail delivery to homes and businesses and mail collection from blue mailboxes would be limited to Monday through Friday. However, post offices that are now open on Saturdays would remain open, and Express Mail delivery service would still be available seven days a week. Beyond getting the regulatory commission’s opinion, the Postal Service needs Congress to approve the change.

3-day weekends may be coming to public schools

Illinois lawmakers are considering a four day school week. State lawmakers want to move financially struggling schools to four day weeks, reports CBS News. “They say it will save money, and it won’t affect classroom time,” reports CBS. “The superintendent of one local school district believes the plan could work. “I think it’s something we should take a look at,” Dr. Kamala Buckner, Superintendent of Thornton Township High Schools District 205, told CBS. “Kids would still have to complete the same number of hours per school year, so switching to four-day school weeks would mean longer school days or shorter summer vacations,” reports CBS. “It’s an intriguing proposal because district 205 faces a $5 million deficit next year and Buckner sees a shortened week as a viable option.”

Man sentenced to prison for breaking into prison

Obscenities and claims of injustice marked a hearing Monday for a Cocoa, Fla. man sentenced to the maximum 15 years in prison for violating probation in a manslaughter case by trying to break back into the Brevard County Detention Center, reports Florida Today. He feared that the family of the victim would seek revenge. Circuit Judge George Maxwell and court deputies called for order as the 25-year-old Sylvester Jiles broke into a profanity-laced tirade and was led out of the courtroom, reports Florida Today.

Thursday, March 25, 2010

[From page 1]

“You have no right to disrupt this courtroom and I admonish you to not do it again,” Maxwell was reported by Florida today telling Jiles when he was brought back to complete the sentencing. “You’ve got a family that loves you and there’s another family involved. Outbursts like that can lead to people getting hurt, something you seem to not have learned.”

Fat rats and corn syrup

A Princeton University research team has demonstrated that all sweeteners are not equal when it comes to weight gain: Rats with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained significantly more weight than those with access to table sugar, even when their overall caloric intake was the same, reports News at Princeton. The Princeton University research indicated In addition to causing significant weight gain in lab animals, long-term consumption of high-fructose corn syrup also led to abnormal increases in body fat, especially in the abdomen, and a rise in circulating blood fats called triglycerides, the Princeton University research indicated. The researchers say the work sheds light on the factors contributing to obesity trends in the United States. “Some people have claimed that high-fructose corn syrup is no different than other sweeteners when it comes to weight gain and obesity, but our results make it clear that this just isn’t true, at least under the conditions of our tests,” said psychology professor Bart Hoebel, who specializes in the neuroscience of appetite, weight and sugar addiction in the News at Princeton Report. “When rats are drinking high-fructose corn syrup at levels well below those in soda pop, they’re becoming obese -- every single one, across the board. Even when rats are fed a high-fat diet, you don’t see this; they don’t all gain extra weight.”

Atkins and vegetables

The Atkins -- popularly known as a low-carbohydrate diet that accommodates a deluxe cheeseburger as long as it is served without the bun and fries -- is revamped in “The New Atkins For a New You,” reports ABC News. The book, developed by Atkins Nutritionals, Inc., recycles some of the advice in what has become a diet industry first kicked off by 1972’s “Dr. Atkins’ Diet Revolution” by Dr. Robert Atkins, who died in 2003, but the new volume includes more emphasis on getting carbohydrates from vegetables, coping with some of the initial travails of beginning the diet, and tips for keeping on the diet when traveling, according to ABC. I call it a kinder, gentler Atkins,” said Keith-Thomas Ayoob, director of the nutrition clinic at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in the ABC report. “I’m not saying the diet wouldn’t help somebody lose weight, but I try to go for the long term and ... [Atkins] isn’t a diet I would recommend somebody stay on.” —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

and giving a little bit to the community. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the Volunteer Corps is all about.,â&#x20AC;? said Amanda Visosky, VVMC volunteer coordinator. The money More than 400 people were there, helping raise money to off the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new PET/CT scanner. The whole project cost $3.5 million, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re part of the volunteersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; philanthropy that supported it, along with the Shaw Outreach Team and other organizations. Then there are the chemotherapy infusion chairs, which arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cheap either. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just bought us 10 chemotherapy infusion chairs. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $20,000 worth of chairs,â&#x20AC;? Deuschle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number of hours and the work they put in to support health care in this valley is astounding.â&#x20AC;? Long-time volunteers Brenda Hemelfarb and Laura Garbe were the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honorees, lauded for giving â&#x20AC;&#x153;countless hours of volunteer time, showing their devotion and commitment to the community for more

The cause Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to take it all for granted, but the Shaw Regional Cancer is relatively new, opening in June 2001. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Events like this help educate people and gives them an opportunity to give back to the hospital and the community,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Jack Eck, president of the VVMC Foundation. The Shaw Regional Cancer Center opened in June 2001. Before that, area cancer patients had to drive to Denver or Grand Junction for treatment. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going through something like that, you want to be home, Eck said. He should know.
