Avon talking tax increase Town wants to increase sales, property tax to pay for $100M in transit upgrades Avon is getting serious with a proposal entitled “Connect Avon Now,” which, according to the town, would increase taxes to create a source of funding for $100M in transit-related improvements. In a letter sent out by the town this week, Avon details the improvements adopted by the town in a plan entitled the Avon Comprehensive Transportation Plan. The improvements include construction of a 500-stall structured parking garage near the Recreation Center


with a cost of $20 million (not including land), more than $12 million of trail and pedestrian improvements, additional bus routes to un-served areas such as Buffalo Ridge, bus storage facilities, fleet replacement, and on-going bus service. The town says its consultants have recommended nearly $100 million in transportation improvements in Avon over the next 20-25 years. While the letter does not detail how the Connect Avon Now proposal would cre-

ate the funding source for these improvements, the town has discussed formulating two ballot questions to ask voters in November. One would be for a property tax mil levy increase of 4.5 mils, which would be phased in over time. Another would be a near 10 percent increase in sales tax, which would raise sales tax in town from 8.4 percent to 9.25 percent. The town council and planning/zoning commission are currently are looking to “prioritize the most important improve-

Speeders beware Police, state patrol to continue increased enforcement on South Frontage Road today

It only took Vail Police and the Colorado State Patrol two hours to pull over 40 vehicles yesterday for speeding, and they’ll be looking to do the same again today. Today’s increased enforcement zone will be located at the South Frontage Road across from the Ritz-Carlton construction site and the Vail Resorts maintenance yard, a 25-mile-per-hour zone. Yesterday’s was located front of the Vail Municipal building, also a speed limit 25 zone. “The increased enforcement is occurring following numerous complaints from pedestrians who have observed motorists failing to stop for them as they attempted to cross the street,” according to the Vail PD. “Colorado state law re-

quires drivers to yield the right-ofway to pedestrians crossing within a crosswalk.” State law also prohibits overtaking or passing of any vehicle stopped at a crosswalk. Violating those laws could result in a $60 fine and three points against a driver’s license. “We have tried several ideas to slow traffic, including parking a marked patrol car near the crosswalk and using an electronic speed sign, but nothing has worked,” said Vail Police Sgt. Samantha Graves. “Hopefully some highly visible enforcement will do the trick and make it safer for our citizens and guests to cross the street.” For more information contact Sgt. Graves at 479-2214.

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Minturn is a community at a crossroads, and a hotly contested town council election could provide some new direction. It’s a big commitment for the $200 monthly stipend. Five candidates are squaring off for town council seats, Earl Bidez, Shelley Bellm, Frank Lorenti, John Rosenfeld and Aggie Martinez, who was not present for the forum. Two others are vying for mayor, incumbent Hawkeye Flaherty and Jerry Baumgartner. Election Day is April 6. Minturn held a candidates forum earlier this week. Candidates had widely varying views on a variety of issues. Like most elections, this one revolves around issues related to money, and how to generate business in their town. Hawkeye Flaherty On economic growth: We’re becoming a bedroom community. I look around at people and I wonder how many times you have gone to restaurants in town, instead of going out of town. We used to have a grocery store, a hardware store, a drug store. Now people buy their groceries in Vail or Avon. We live between two of the greatest ski resorts in the world. We need to figure out how to steal a few of those customers, and get them to spend a little time in Minturn. On pressing environmental issues: The Superfund site. If you turn your eye a away from it, they let it go. Viacom walked away from their responsibilities, and the council raised hell. They let the ditches fill up and then the culverts clogged. Some of that contaminated runoff found its way to the river, and the years of cleanup and mitigation work were compromised. On working with Eagle County government: We have been working with the county. We go down and discuss population growth, but we have a couple commissioners who are anti growth. In the past few years I’ve seen the relationship improve dramatically. I think we’re moving forward and a lot of the problems of the past are behind us. On working with other council members: It takes four to make a decision, and that means sometimes you’re gong to be on the losing side of a question. Whatever you do don’t take this personally. It’s just business. You have to take a vote and be businesslike about it. Jerry Baumgartner On economic growth: I have suggested waiving fees for startup businesses. The competition is 20 times

greater than it was just 20 years ago. Waive the building fees so people can get construction started now while the economy is slow. The foremost priority is to promote business. On pressing environmental issues: The EPA has to be reminded that the mine site might be about to fall in. On working with Eagle County government: We have meetings to discuss issues, and how we can work together to solve them. Everyone pays taxes, and we need to remember that we’re all in this together. As difficult as this recession has been, Minturn can be proud that we have not had to fire or furlough one employee. The county cannot say that. On working with other council members: Those 4-3 votes tell me that democracy is working. I try to serve the citizens, but you won’t please everyone all the time. Frank Lorenti On economic growth: I’ve come before the town council asking them to waive the water fees, and I’ve been shot down. Minturn folks voted for the $180 million annexation package because it would rejuvenate this town. Most of the problems we face could be solved with that money. It could fund the improvements we need to make the town more attractive. I’ve been outspoken that we should hold the developer accountable for the money Minturn is owed. I’m running to create a more business-friendly environment. Lorenti runs On pressing environmental issues: Workforce housing going in on Forest Land needs to be handled properly, especially when it comes to wildlife mitigation. Solar panels on public buildings would cut energy costs and make our community more green and the energy consumption more sustainable. On working with Eagle County government: We’re not moving forward, we’re standing still and going backward, and the county cutting ECO bus service once a day to Minturn has not helped. It needs to be a cooperative relationship that’s beneficial to both sides. On working with other council members: We should be creative, open minded, treat people fairly and respect [See MINTURN CANDIDATES, page 23]

First Descents to hold annual ball tomorrow Ludden: fundraiser will help the organization expand By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer First Descents, a non-profit organization founded in Vail, provides outdoor adventure experiences to promote emotional, psychological and physical healing for young adults with cancer. And they’re throwing a big party tomorrow night. The fourth annual First Descents Ball will be held at the Ritz Carlton in Bachelor Gulch, catered by Wolfgang Puck’s world-renowned restaurant Spago with open bar, live and silent auctions, personal stories shared by past participants and live music provided by Funkiphino. The band is a time-tested, powerhouse band delivers a huge 11 piece sound. They are known for their “Chaka Khan” style vocals, dynamic horn section and Hammond organ laced grooves. You can catch the band all over the Colorado Front Range ripping up dance floors and festivals in equal measure. Their original music can be described as “euro-funk” style acid-jazz sprinkled with retro Oakland style horns. Soulful female vocal leads and harmonies soar together seamlessly. The attire ranges from jeans to tuxes, with the one encouragement that you should wear a hat – the zanier, the better. Brad Ludden, a professional kayaker and founder of the organization, says First Descents is blowing up. “We relocated our headquarters down Boulder to allow us to grow, not only nationally but targeting the Vail Valley, our home, as well,” Ludden told the Mountaineer yesterday. “We went from two weeks to five weeks of programming in the Vail Valley alone. We’ve added rock climbing and mountaineering.” He said, while First Descents will always be at home in Vail, the transition to Boulder has allowed the program to expanded to 15 total weeks of programming in four different states. One of the advantages of being based out of a metropolitan college town is access to the vast reservoir of graduate and undergraduate interns that can help the organization and minimize costs. First Descents’ goal is to expand from nine to fifty camps by 2014, which will enable them to support over 1,000 young adult survivors per year. The city of Boulder provides access to a larger community of donors,

She is the inspiration I have felt to help others. Her dedicated fight to learn about her illness led her upon a trial drug called Herceptin,� Nadherny said. The drug, which only a quarter of women could take due to the presence of their HER-2 gene, is a non-toxic form of preventing the spread of cancer. Nadherny calls the drug “a true miracle.� There is no hair loss, no stomach upset. The drug is now certifiably on the market is helping thousands of women daily, giving them the hope they need to wake up each morning and keep fighting, she says. All donations less the transaction fees will be donated to the Vail Breast Cancer Awareness Group. There is a minimum donation of $150 per team of three participants.

Vail Breakaways on 5-game winning streak Valley’s only women’s Division-A hockey team to hold fundraiser tomorrow By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer The Vail Breakaways, the Vail Valley’s only women’s Division-A hockey team, played their final league home game of the season last weekend, shutting out the DU Pioneers 9 to 0. This comes as their fifth win in a row, and a very positive way to head into the state championship tournament April 9 – 11. “It feels really good to have this kind of momentum going into our state tournament,� says Captain Jen Babcock, “and it was great to see so many fans turn out for our last home game.�

In the next couple weeks, the Breakaways will have a few practices and a scrimmage to get ready for the upcoming tournament and they will be holding their third annual “Beer Bust� at Agave tomorrow. The “Beer Bust� is a fundraiser to help cover some of the costs of ice time, tournament fees and travel expenses. The party goes from 3 to 6 p.m. in Avon.

Boulder-based DJ Harry was introduced to the house music movement via a Grateful Dead parking lot rave in the Bay Area, and has been spinning his addictive style of organic beats throughout the US since 1993. His groundbreaking release, The String Cheese Remix Project, was a pioneering mash-up of soaring jam band energy and late night freaky beats, inspired by the glory days of the rave scene in the 1990â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. This genre-bending collision of sounds introduced loyal and enthusiastic live music fans to the non-stop, all night mayhem of DJ culture.

The four combine to form Souls of Mischief, a feisty band of microphone marauders and beat plunderers. The Souls of Mischief have been honing their skills for nearly two decades in the Oakland area. They all hail from the same area in East Oakland and have attended school together since elementary; their lasting friendship strengthened by their mutual interest in

Taylor Brown makes sweet sounds for a sour economy. His sound is a delicious hybrid of Maroon 5 and Jason Mraz, mixed with a little John Mayer on acid. He has played for 5000+ capacity audiences at venues such as Benaroya Hall in Seattle and his music has been featured in movies such as “Center of Time,” “The Red Dress,” and “Portrait of a Woman.” He has toured throughout the country as a one-man band. He uses a loop pedal in his live performances to record layers of drumbeats, bass lines, and many other simulated instruments on his Korg Triton Extreme (state of the art keyboard). Brown then adds both electric and acoustic guitar parts with swirling effects to the mix covering all types of genres that will sure have something pleasing for everyone.

Lawmakers uniformly condemned the harassment, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the agreement ended. Democrats said Republicans were slow to condemn the vigilantism, while Republicans said Democrats were playing politics with the threats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By ratcheting up the rhetoric, some will only inflame these situations to dangerous levels,â&#x20AC;? said House Republican Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enough is enough. It has to stop.â&#x20AC;? At least 10 Democrats now have reported harassment, including incidents involving at least four of their offices in New York, Arizona and Kansas. More frequent have been obscenity-laced, sometime-threatening phone messages. An undisclosed number of lawmakers have been given increased police protection.

With emotions raw around the nation over this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Democrats-only vote to approve the nearly $1 trillion redesign of the health care system, Obama took the opposition to task for â&#x20AC;&#x153;plenty of fear-mongering, plenty of overheated rhetoric.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you turn on the news, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see that those same folks are still shouting about how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be the end of the world because this bill passed,â&#x20AC;? said Obama, returning to the college town where, as a presidential candidate three years ago, he unveiled his plan to provide health care for all.

Verbal shots arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only ones flying over health care bill

It perhaps was not the endorsement President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress were looking for. Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform â&#x20AC;&#x153;a miracleâ&#x20AC;? and a major victory for Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presidency, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) government,â&#x20AC;? Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand against lobbyists and â&#x20AC;&#x153;mercenaries.â&#x20AC;? But the Cuban leader also used the lengthy piece to criticize the American president for his lack of leadership on climate change and immigration reform, and for his decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, among many other things. And he said it was remarkable that the most powerful country on earth took more than two centuries from its founding to approve something as basic as health benefits for all.

Zuloaga said military intelligence agents detained him at an airport in the northwestern state of Falcon as he was preparing to fly on his private plane with his wife to the Caribbean island of Bonaire, where they planned to vacation. The arrest could be a decisive development in Chavezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive to rein in a channel that he has accused of trying to undermine his government. Globovision has been the only stridently anti-Chavez channel left on the air since another opposition-aligned channel, RCTV, was forced off cable and satellite TV in January. RCTV was booted off the open airwaves in 2007.




More than half of U.S. borrowers who received loan modifications on delinquent mortgages defaulted again after nine months, according to a federal report reviewed by Bloomberg. The re-default rate of loans modified in the first quarter of 2009 was 51.5 percent by the end of the year, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Office of Thrift Supervision said in a joint report today in Bloombergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article. The figure, which measures payments at least 30 days late, climbed to 57.9 percent for changes made in the prior 12 months, reports Bloomberg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;U.S. homeowners are struggling to make payments as depressed housing prices leave them owing more than their properties are worth,â&#x20AC;? the article said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;About 24 percent of properties with a mortgage were underwater in the fourth quarter, First American CoreLogic said last month. The median price of a U.S. home was $165,100 in February, down 28 percent from its peak in July 2006, according to the National Association of Realtors.â&#x20AC;? Modifications are â&#x20AC;&#x153;clearly not working well and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a surprise,â&#x20AC;? said Sam Khater, a senior economist at First American CoreLogic in Tysons Corner, Virginia, in the report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pointless to rewrite these loans because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re underwater.â&#x20AC;?

as a date,” reports the Journal. “But the school issued a memo Feb. 5 saying prom dates had to be of the opposite sex, and Superintendent Teresa McNeece told McMillen she and her girlfriend could be sent home if any of the other students complained. When the American Civil Liberties Union tried to intervene, the school district canceled the prom.”

Verizon challenges FCC powers

One of the nation’s biggest telecommunications providers urged the Federal Communications Commission on Wednesday not to assert its authority over Internet services, a challenge that comes as the agency embarks on a 10-year effort to greatly expand broadband access across the country, in a Washington Post report. “Verizon Communications said that the FCC’s power over high-speed Internet services is “at best murky” and offered recommendations to Congress that could take away much of the agency’s power,” reports the Post. “Tom Tauke, Verizon’s top lobbyist, urged lawmakers to rethink the way the government oversees broadband, arguing that the FCC should shift to more of an enforcement role -- like that of the Federal Trade Commission -- from its current status as a rule-making body.” “In my view, the current statute is badly out of date. Now is the time to focus on updating the law affecting the Internet,” Tauke reportedly said in a speech before a tech policy forum in Washington. “To fulfill broadband’s potential, it’s time for Congress to take a fresh look at our nation’s communications policy framework.”

Court rules it’s illegal not to rent to illegals

A federal judge has ruled that a Farmers Branch, Texas ordinance banning illegal immigrants from renting apartments is unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Jane J. Boyle of Dallas ruled Wednesday that the ordinance was an attempt to enforce U.S. immigration laws, something only the federal government can do, reports NBC News. “Ordinance 2952 is a regulation of immigration and is preempted by the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution because the authority to regulate immigration is exclusively a federal power,” she wrote, according to NBC. “The ordinance established a licensing system for renters in Farmers Branch. Renters would be required to pay a $5 fee and obtain a residential occupancy license issued by the city’s building inspector,” reports NBC “Under the system, the building inspector would verify a renter’s immigration status with federal officials if the renter did not declare him or herself a citizen or national of the United States. The city would revoke the licenses of people the federal government said were in the country illegally.”

Social Security ahead of schedule

The bursting of the real estate bubble and the ensuing recession have hurt jobs, home prices and now Social Security, reports The New York Times. This year, the system will pay out more in benefits than it receives in

payroll taxes, an important threshold it was not expected to cross until at least 2016, according to the Congressional Budget Office in the Times’ report. Stephen C. Goss, chief actuary of the Social Security Administration, said that while the Congressional projection would probably be borne out, the change would have no effect on benefits in 2010 and retirees would keep receiving their checks as usual, according to the Times. The problem, he said, is that payments have risen more than expected during the downturn, because jobs disappeared and people applied for benefits sooner than they had planned. At the same time, the program’s revenue has fallen sharply, because there are fewer paychecks to tax, reports the Times.

Unemployed to receive mortgage discounts

The Obama administration plans to overhaul how it is tackling the foreclosure crisis, in part by requiring lenders to temporarily slash or eliminate monthly mortgage payments for many borrowers who are unemployed, senior officials said Thursday, according to the Washington Post. Banks and other lenders would have to reduce the payments to no more than 31 percent of a borrower’s income, which would typically be the amount of unemployment insurance, for three to six months. In some cases, administration officials said, a lender could allow a borrower to skip payments altogether, reports the Post. “The new push, which the White House is scheduled to announce Friday, takes direct aim at the major cause of the current wave of foreclosures: the spike in unemployment,” reports the Post. “While the initial mortgage crisis that erupted three years ago resulted from millions of risky home loans that went bad, more-recent defaults reflect the country’s economic downturn and the inability of jobless borrowers to keep paying.”

Guess who wasn’t coming to dinner

For a head of government to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of. Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip viewed in Jerusalem as a humiliation, reports the Times a British news source. “After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisers and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US congressman, who spoke to the Prime Minister, said,” in Times’ report. “Left to talk among themselves Mr Netanyahu and his aides retreated to the Roosevelt Room.” According to the report, he spent a further half-hour with Mr Obama and extended his stay for a day of emergency talks to try to restart peace negotiations. However, he left last night with no official statement from either side. The Times reported that he returned to Israel yesterday isolated after what Israeli media have called a White House ambush for which he is largely to blame.

The MTV reality show that propelled Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge And Heidi Montag to fame has been scrapped, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “The Hills’” upcoming sixth season will be its last. The program, which documented the lives of a group of friends as they tried to find success in Los Angeles, debuted in 2006 and became a hit around the world, reports the Chronicle. Conrad and her pals have since launched various side-careers on the back of the show’s success, including book, fashion and other TV ventures, but MTV network bosses have now decided to call time on the reallife drama after the new season airs in April, according to the Chronicle’s report. Creator Adam DiVello reportedly told Entertainment Weekly, “I think we’ve told the story of struggle and of finding yourself in L.A. A lot of these kids have found themselves and have certainly embarked on different careers and different paths.”

Krishnas can’t cash in at airports anymore

Banning groups such as the Hare Krishnas and any other private citizen from asking for money at an airport is a constitutional way to keep travelers from being bothered, the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “The court upheld a Los Angeles ordinance that makes it illegal to ask for money on the sidewalks and in the terminals of Los Angeles International Airport,” reports the Chronicle. “The case was closely followed by airport officials in San Francisco, who allow people with permits to solicit only at two “free speech zones” in the terminals.” “We’re gratified that the Supreme Court gave airports freedom to protect undue harassment of travelers and also help ensure airport security,” reportedly said Deputy City Attorney Danny Chou, who represented San Francisco in the case. He said in the Chronicles report that he expects officials at San Francisco International Airport to study the ruling and decide whether

to propose a ban on soliciting money.

Sushi and the U.N.

Aggressive lobbying from Asian nations led by Japan killed all efforts to protect marine species at a U.N. meeting, leaving environmentalists fuming Thursday that efforts to conserve blue fin tuna and sharks were undermined by commercial interests. The bid to regulate the trade was also hampered by concerns from poor nations that such measures would devastate their fishing economies at a time that many were just emerging from recession. “This conference has been a disaster for conservation,” said Oliver Knowles of Greenpeace. “Country after country has come out at this meeting arguing for business as usual and continued trade in wildlife species that are already devastated by human activity.” The 175-nation Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, or CITES, opened two weeks ago with calls from the United States and Europeans to give a lifeline to overfished oceans. But the meeting ended Thursday with little to show their efforts.

King of Heroin dethroned

Federal police have arrested Mexico’s so-called “King of Heroin,” a powerful drug trafficker allegedly responsible for running hundreds of pounds of heroin into Southern California each year, authorities said today. Jose Antonio Medina, nicknamed “Don Pepe,” was arrested in the western state of Michoacan yesterday. Medina, 36, ran a complex smuggling operation that hauled 440 pounds of heroin each month across the Mexican border in Tijuana for La Familia drug cartel, police said. The White House National Drug Threat Assessment says that while heroin use is stable or decreasing in the US, the source of the drug has shifted in recent years from Colombia—where production and purity are declining—to Mexico, where powerful drug cartels are gaining a foothold in the lucrative market.

Cheer Up!




Prime Rib Spectacular Every Night.

Both Steve Williams and Tiger Woods have denied that Williams knew anything about Tigerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long string of affairs, but some believe Tiger may be looking for a new caddie after the Masters. Steve Williams has denied accusations by porn star Joslyn James that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d met in nightclubs and put an end to speculation that he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be caddying for Tiger Woods at the Masters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know this woman hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t met me in a nightclub with Tiger because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been to a nightclub with Tiger,â&#x20AC;? Williams told Sunday from his home in New Zealand. According to a story by Robert Lusetich of FOXSports, an unnamed high-profile golfer has been laying bets that Williams would be axed and replaced with Billy Foster, a well-respected Englishman who caddies for Lee Westwood.

well.   The overtime modification allows a team losing the coin toss and allowing a field goal on the first series to then get a possession â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a better system, so why not have a better system every game?â&#x20AC;? Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey

Lurie said. Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league wants to meet with the players and the networks for some input and further discuss the ramifications of expanding the OT change. The change was proposed only for the postseason by the competition committee and was passed 28-4 Tuesday. It is expected that the league will revisit the rule change in May to consider including the regular season.

Foster denied knowing anything of such a plan. Although many have doubted that Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; claims that he knew nothing, Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; former swing coach, Butch Harmon, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t among them, Lusetich reported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to agree with Steve,â&#x20AC;? he said in a recent radio interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Steve very well. Actually Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the one that hired Steve when Tiger wanted to get rid of Fluff and go in a different direction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would agree with Steve and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you why. Number one, Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife and Elin are very good friends and Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good friend of Elin. I think had he known something, I think he wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked to Tiger about it. Williams confirmed Sunday that he would be on Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bag for his big comeback at the Masters, but there has been no affirmation made beyond Augusta National.

town has changed its 2010 budget to include indefinitely freezing and eliminating positions, continuing the full-time furlough program though the end of the year, and reducing the overtime hours in several departments. Town departments are also reducing operating supplies, contract services, and other operating costs, according to the town. “Some of the major cutbacks included elimination of the live band for the Salute to the USA, deferral of ditch maintenance, delay of the Upper Buck Creek bridge overlay, reduction of street striping, the deferral of software upgrades and training, and cut backs in advertising costs,” according to a statement from the town. Currently, Avon operates a fare-free bus system which is fully subsidized by the town’s general fund at a cost of over one million dollars per year. Town has challenging layout “Avon has unique challenges to connect the disparate parts of town,” the letter states. “Two state highways, the Union Pacific railroad, and Eagle River all run eastwest and divide the Town.” It also points out that development between the east and west sides of Avon is spread out, with popular destinations like Wal-Mart being at the eastern end and Agave and Beaver Creek’s Bear Lot being on the west side of town, and that more than 800 residents at Buffalo Ridge have no bus service at all. “There is consensus among citizens, council members and city planners that the lack of connections between the various parts of Avon are problematic and requires a pro-active approach in order to meet the Town’s goals,” according to the letter. “Solving the transportation and connectivity challenges will take time. It will take up to five years to plan, design, and build a parking structure and other major capital components.” “We need to start now, to be pro-active and avoid costly mistakes,” says Brooks. Open for public comment Avon is currently drafting the Connect Avon Now project proposal, and it will be open for public review and comment this spring.

Earl Bidez On economic growth: The most successful thing weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had is the Minturn Market, and that started back in the 1990s. We need to develop a little temporary amnesia about the development up on the mountain. Minturn has always gotten through on its own, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what needs to happen again. On pressing environmental issues: The EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Superfund site. We need to pressure the EPA to monitor the situation. Around the town are elk migration corridors that need to remain undisturbed.

Shelley Bellm On economic growth: My family goes back six generations in Minturn, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen lots of economic cycles. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to create and maintain a businessfriendly environment to attract new businesses to town, and help the ones that are already here. On pressing environmental issues: Part of Minturnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental problem is the infrastructure, old and crumbling pipes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major pollution at the railroad site. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we have to spend $400,000 to address that problem. The minerals in that sand eat through the pipes. We must continue to hold CBS and Viacom accountable for the Superfund site. On working with Eagle County government: Cooperation with the county is imperative to the health of the town. We need each other to succeed, and if that relationship isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mutually detrimental. On working with other council members: One person cannot make all the difference and make all the changes they would like to see. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m one of seven votes, no matter which way it goes. Sometimes it goes my way, sometimes it does not.


This Weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music Lineup!


John Rosenfeld On economic growth: We should be promoting the uniqueness and character of this town. People come here and make come memories. Memories become traditions, and people with traditions return. I bring to the table a logical business mind, and I will apply sound, logical business sense to the decisions the council is called upon to make. On pressing environmental issues: The Superfund site. Then the development on Battle Mountain. We need to cap most of that so we can have a safe environment for our families and children. We have to keep working on the river, and keep working on the boneyard. On working with Eagle County government: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital that the relationship is mutually beneficial. The county draws much of its sales tax revenue from the towns. On working with other council members: As a town council member, I need to listen to the needs and the desires of the citizens of the town. We have to work together to come to the decisions that will most benefit the town, now and into the future.

On working with Eagle County government: It needs to be a cooperative relationship so it can be as mutually beneficial as possible. ECO Transit has cut its service and that has been a detriment to our town. On working with other council members: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to listen to the citizens, and work with the people on the council to create a common vision thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on the input from the citizens.


each others opinions. Give everyone on the council a fair shake and put the community first. Still, we need to change Minturn. If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get some new people on the council, nothing is going to change.
