Last show of the season for Steve Meyer today

Thousands of U.S. homes tainted by Chinese drywall should be completely gutted, according to new guidelines released yesterday by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The guidelines say electrical wiring, outlets, circuit breakers, fire alarm systems, carbon monoxide alarms, fire sprinklers, gas pipes and drywall need to be removed. About 3,000 homeowners, mostly in Florida, Virginia, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, have reported problems with the Chinese-made drywall, which was imported in large quantities during the housing boom and after a string of Gulf Coast hurricanes.

Steve Meyer’s 5 p.m. show at The Club in Vail Village is known for the raunchy comedy as much as – if not, more than – his music. He’s playing his last show of the season today. See story inside.

The 2010 Cult Cross is happening in Eagle today, bringing together cyclocross racers of all ages and abilities for the annual spring competition. The tagline for the event is, “Suffer in the spring as you do in the fall,” and the venue will host six flights, with the Juniors kicking things off at 9 a.m., Elite Women at 12:20 p.m. and Elite Men at 1:15 p.m. Don’t let the recent snow fool you. Race

organizer Larry Grossman says the course is “dry as a bone” and in great shape for the race today. There will also be intermediate and beginner flights for men and woman. All registration is on the day of the race, and most riders will use traditional mountain bikes, so if you don’t have a cyclocross set up, don’t let that hold you back. Cyclocross is like mountain biking, only the courses feature steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly [See CYCLOCROSS, page 22]

Five candidates are running for three seats on the Eagle town board. They are, from left, Mikel “Pappy” Kerst, Matt Mueller, Brandi Resa, Scott Turnipseed and Scot Webster.

949-1199 | Eagle-Vail, CO

Towns run on money, and Eagle voters asked the five town board candidates what they’d do to attract it. Eagle voters shot down Eagle River Station, with all its promise of sales taxes. So now what? Suggestions ran from tax increases, to business recruitment, infill development and tourism. “I’m a big proponent of tourism-based recreation,” said candidate Scott Turnipseed. “We have great fishing, hunting, mountain biking, and we have one of the world’s best ski areas 30 miles away.” Mikel Kerst is the only incumbent running. Turnipseed and Scot Webster serve on the town’s planning and zoning commission. Matt Mueller and Brandi Resa are challenging for the three available seats. “Every study I’ve seen says sales tax is king,” said

Webster. “We’re basically running a business here. If you don’t capture the sales tax dollars by shopping locally, it goes somewhere else and they get to keep those dollars. Not only do we have great businesses locally, we have a pipeline in I-70 coming through here that could be used to capture even more sales tax revenue.” Sales taxes are important, Resa said, but it’s not everything. “In the wake of Eagle River Station, the town is divided and we must fix that,” Resa said. “Bringing more business to town is important, but we should look beyond sales taxes. Grants are available from many sources for a variety of projects.” Kerst serves as the town board’s representative on the marketing committee, “We keep coming back to revenues,” he said. “We [See EAGLE, page 21]

Leadville terrorism suspect arrested in Philadelphia Officials say ‘Jihad Jamie’ Paulin-Ramierz is pregnant Federal prosecutors filed terrorism charges yesterday against a Leadville woman accused of plotting online to attend a terror training camp. Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, who is originally from Leadville and used to work in Edwards, flew from Ireland Friday to Philadelphia, where she was arrested by agents with the joint terrorism task force there. Her 6-year-old son flew with her and was placed in the custody of child protective service workers. A U.S. official told The Associated Press that PaulinRamirez is pregnant. The official was not authorized to discuss that detail and spoke on condition of anonymity. Paulin-Ramirez, dubbed “Jihad Jamie,” made a brief initial appearance in federal court yesterday, and a detention hearing was scheduled for next week. Her lawyer could not immediately be reached for comment. Last month, authorities in Ireland detained PaulinRamirez and six others as they investigated an alleged plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist whose drawing had offended many Muslims. Those seven suspects in Ireland were linked to Colleen LaRose, a 46-year-old woman who had traveled to Europe but was arrested last fall when she returned to the United States. The new indictment charges that LaRose and PaulinRamirez, 31, separately traveled to Europe to support violent jihad, or Muslim holy war. The court papers also say that once LaRose was in Europe, she invited Paulin-Ramirez to join her to attend a “training camp.” Paulin-Ramirez, prosecutors charge, accepted the invitation and asked to bring her 6-year-old son with her. She and the boy traveled to Europe last September and on the day of her arrival, she married a co-conspirator whom she knew only from online discussions, authorities said. Last August, the Paulin-Ramirez and LaRose allegedly had a computer conversation in which LaRose said “when our brothers defend our faith (and) their homes, they are terrorists ... fine, then I am a terrorist and proud to be this.” According to the indictment, Paulin-Ramirez replied, “that’s right... if that’s how they call it then so be it I am what I am.” When the initial charges were unsealed last month against LaRose, it marked one of only a handful of times the U.S. has filed terrorism charges against a woman. Prosecutors alleged that LaRose called herself “Ji-

had Jane” in Internet conversations, but she denied that when questioned by the FBI. She has pleaded not guilty in the case. LaRose apparently spent long hours online in recent years while caring for her boyfriend’s elderly father in a small eastern Pennsylvania town. The congressman who represents the district said she had cooperated with authorities after her arrest last fall, which went unannounced until the seven suspects in Ireland were detained in March. Paulin-Ramirez’s mother, Christine Mott, said she had heard that her daughter returned to the U.S. Friday. “She’s in some serious, serious trouble,” Mott said tearfully in a phone call from her home in Leadville, Colo. Mott said she didn’t know if her daughter was pregnant. She said she was concerned about her grandson. “This has been twice that that little boy has been with his mother when she was arrested, in two different countries,” Mott said. “I need somebody to help me bring that little boy back here to some sanity. That little boy didn’t ask for any of this.” Mott said she was also worried about her daughter. “My daughter’s not a monster,” Mott said. “These people came into my home through the Internet and they seduced a very lonely, lonely person. If that can happen to me, it can happen to anybody.”

House Bill 1017 would allow voluntary agreements between public, private By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

A rent control bill slogging through the state legislature is either an angel of mercy or an agent of Satan. So what else is new. House Bill 1017 sets the table for voluntary rent control agreements between developers and local governments. Right now, locals get their knuckles cracked for passing any ordinance that controls rent on any privately owned property – mostly because such requirements are illegal in Colorado. The voluntary part was added yesterday in the Colorado state Senate, and that made everyone in the upper chamber happy enough to pass it. Now it goes back to the House, from whence it came, for further review. Colorado’s development industry has staked out a position that the measure is the end of civilization, or at least their part of it. On the other side, people like the Pitkin County/Aspen Housing Authority wonder aloud how the Body Politic ever rested its collective head without this. In Eagle County, building affordable housing isn’t all that voluntary. A few years ago the county commissioners started requiring that something like 30 percent of all the square footage developer develops is affordable housing. Voluntary compliance Gini Pingenot is the policy and research director with Colorado Counties Incorporated. They’re a lobbying organization for commissioners and county governments across Colorado. They’re for this, she said. “The county commissioners were concerned about the same things opponents were concerned about, that it would lead to arm twisting,” Pingenot said. Apparently, county commissioners across Colorado aren’t afraid they’d do something like that, but you never know who might ride a wave into elected office, or what they might do. “They were concerned about the future,” Pingenot said. “They wouldn’t do it, but their successors might. These are voluntary agreements. We cannot stress that strongly enough.”

Blame Boulder You can blame Aspen, Boulder and Telluride for this little legislative dustup. The Peoples Republic of Boulder tried some rent control about 20 years ago, but nothing came of it. Telluride jumped into the fray a few years ago and some lawyers jumped in right after them. Then Pitkin County/Aspen muddied the waters a little more. Actually, it wasn’t Aspen’s fault. It’s just fun to blame them. Some really rich people in Aspen bought up some deed-restricted rental properties, with a form of rent control attached. Their lawyers pointed out, correctly, that rent control is illegal in Colorado. Rent control is not public policy, said Tom McCabe, executive director of the Pitkin County/Aspen Housing Authority. His explanation was brilliant, and it goes like this. “If a prostitute and a customer entered into an business agreement, then completed the terms of their agreement, then the customer refused to pay, the prostitute could tell the authorities, ‘He stiffed me,’” McCabe said, adding that the pun was intended. “The authorities would tell her she’s out of luck because it’s not in keeping with public policy.” The development world had its knickers in a twist about rent controls becoming the law of the land, but breathed a collective sigh of relief when the state Senate yesterday made them voluntary, and kicked the bill back to the House. “It’s for rental housing,” McCabe said. “We have lots of tools for ownership, but not many for rental properties.” McCabe is relatively amused by all the upheaval and breathless rhetoric. He was in the state Capitol last week for the Senate hearings, and will probably have to go back for the House hearings. Lots of lies get thrown around with something like this, and if lies were stones they’d have had a quarry,” he said. “The world is replete with developers who come in, use the heck out of a community, then run up the road to use up some other place. You can go pillage those communities. “House Bill 1017 doesn’t get in the way of that,” McCabe said. “It’s very measured. It allows communities to develop affordable rental housing and keep it affordable.”

If you’re looking for an après ski show that is not suited for the entire family, rather for people who like to party – a show that encourages a healthy amount of drinking, raunchy jokes and good times – Steve Meyer, at The Club in Vail Village, offers that alternative. He’s playing his last show of the season today, and, with Steve, the only thing certain about his plans for next year is that they are uncertain. He says The Club is a perfect setting for a Steve Meyer show. “There are no windows and the kids can’t come down, so we can do a little more of an adult show,” Meyer said. “[My Music] is pretty diversified I play everything from reggae to country, rock to comedy, classics to alternative; You name it.” Meyer’s 5 p.m. show is known for his raunchy comic act as much as – if not, more than – his music. But to call it an “act” may not be quite accurate because of the authenticity with which he performs. His politically incorrect, R-rated humor lends itself well to his audience of locals and people on vacation who want to let lose. If you attend the final Good Times Man show tonight, you might just get called out from the stage, especially if you’re a hot chick. And, if you don’t appear to be having a good enough time, Meyer will see to it that you do. It’s all in the name of Good Times. And, if you do participate in the show, there’s a shot of tequila waiting for you when it’s over. “There’s a certain type of music that works well in resort towns, but I’m a little different. Most guys would get punched out if they did what I do,” he explains.

ed ways with her longtime partner, Tim Robbins, last summer after 23 years together,” reports the Chronicle. “She has now opened up about life without the “Shawshank Redemption” star, insisting it’s similar to gliding in the sky alone.” Sarandon reportedly tells Entertainment Weekly, “I did a movie a long time ago where I had to fly a glider. You get towed up in the air by a plane, and it’s loud and annoying. And at some point you pull the cord and you’re suddenly floating, and in your mind it makes absolutely no sense. But it’s exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That’s where I am now.” And despite refuting reports she is dating her 31-yearold business partner Jonathan Bricklin, the actress insists she would be open to finding love again, according to the Chronicles report. She adds, “It’s a long time to not be dating and to then be going back into it. I certainly love the idea of being in love, and I love the idea of companionship. ... I think the point is to just keep moving, and to just say yes to life.”

Moscow terrorist may have been 17-year-old girl

The image is striking: a sultry teenager, partly veiled, in the embrace of a bearded man — both grasping handguns. The photo appeared Friday in a leading Russian newspaper, which reported that the teen was one of the two female suicide bombers who struck Moscow’s subway. The paper indicated that she may have been out to avenge her husband, an Islamic militant killed by Russian forces. Russian investigators said one of the attackers was a 17-year-old widow named Dzhanet Abdurakhmanova. They did not confirm that the photo published in the Kommersant newspaper was that of the bomber. Kommersant published what it said was a picture of Abdurakhmanova, also known as Abdullayeva, dressed in a black Muslim headscarf and holding a Makarov pistol. The image was broadcast on all nationwide television networks. A man with his arm around her, holding a bigger Stechkin gun, was identified as Umalat Magomedov, whom the paper described as an Islamist militant leader killed by government forces in December.

Cyber attacks linked to China

An organization for foreign journalists based in China has become the latest victim of cyberattacks targeting the Web sites or e-mail accounts of human rights groups and reporters focused on China. Cyberattacks linked to China have gained more attention since Google Inc. accused Chinese hackers in January of trying to plunder its software coding and of hijacking the Gmail accounts of human rights activists protesting Beijing’s policies. The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China said in an e-mailed statement Friday that its Web site was taken down because of denial-of-service attacks apparently launched over the last two days by computers within China and in the United States. “We do not know who is behind these attacks or what their motivation is,” the statement said.

Abortion doctor killer sentenced to life

A man who murdered one of the few U.S. doctors who performed late-term abortions used his sentencing hearing as a forum to espouse his views in an effort to justify his crime, arguing that he had chosen to obey “God’s law” to save babies. Scott Roeder was sentenced Thursday to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 50 years, the longest sentence possible under Kansas law for first-degree murder. The 52-year-old Kansas City, Mo., man killed George Tiller as he was serving as an usher last May in the foyer of the doctor’s church in Wichita. “I stopped him so he could not dismember another innocent baby,” Roeder said. “Wichita is a far safer place for unborn babies without George Tiller.”

Fried eggs are good

Scientists believe that breakfast programs the metabolism for the rest of the day, and a fatty meal will help the body break down fat later on, according to the Telegraph. Carbohydrate rich foods in contrast appear mainly to prepare the body to break down only carbohydrates, [See THE UPDATE, pages 10-11]

the International Journal of Obesity was cited in the Telegraph report. Dr Martin Young, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, said in the report: “The first meal you have appears to program your metabolism for the rest of the day. This study suggests that if you ate a carbohydrate-rich breakfast it would promote carbohydrate utilisation throughout the rest of the day, whereas if you have a fat-rich breakfast, you [can] transfer your energy utilisation between carbohydrate and fat.”

Rescuers cheered Friday after hearing faint signs of life — tapping noises, and possibly shouting — from inside a flooded Chinese coal mine where 153 workers have been trapped for more than five days. Footage on state-run China Central Television showed rescuers tapping on pipes with a wrench, then cheering and jumping after hearing a response. They lowered pens and paper, along with glucose and milk, down metal pipes to the spot where the tapping was heard. About 3,000 rescuers were working nonstop to pump water out of the Wangjialing mine, which government officials say flooded Sunday afternoon when workers digging tunnels broke into an old shaft filled with water. But experts said it could still take days to reach the miners — and their survival depended on whether they had decent air to breathe and clean water to drink.

Ellen may be a material girl

Madonna and Ellen DeGeneres are distant cousins with Canadian roots, according to a genealogy Web site, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. A genealogist for has discovered that the Queen of Pop and the talk show host are related through a 10th great-grandfather -- Martin Aucoin of France -- whose daughters emigrated to Nova Scotia, Canada, in the early 1600s. The expert tells the New York Daily News, “It’s not every day you discover two celebrity icons are related,

but it’s their similarities that make the connection so extraordinary. Madonna and Ellen were born the same year, have both written books and been on tour, and are known for their impressive dance moves.” According to the Chronicle, the Material Girl and the funny woman were both born in 1958.


Sheen may be gone soon from Two and a Half Men

Charlie Sheen is looking at a future without “Two and a Half Men.” According to a person close to the actor, Sheen has told friends that wants to leave the hit CBS comedy in which he’s starred for seven years. The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because Sheen had made the remarks in private and had not intended them to be discussed publicly. Sheen’s desire to exit the sitcom was reported by People magazine online Thursday. CBS had no comment, Charlie Sheen is shown in a scene from the CBS spokesman Phil Gonzales comedy, “Two and a Half said Thursday.

Aren’t you glad you didn’t go to Miami?

Florida was exceedingly chilly this winter, especially in South Florida, at least as far as Florida goes. “Now, with the data in, the National Weather Service has made it official,” reports CBS. “The first 3 months of the year were the coldest ever reported in Miami Beach, Naples, and West Palm Beach, and was among the coldest winters ever for Ft. Lauderdale and Miami.”

According to CBS that information was included in an analysis of winter weather patterns conducted by the National Weather Service weather forecast office in Miami. Forecasters said March set record cold readings for Miami Beach, which was 5.8 degrees colder than normal, on average, and for Naples, where the average temperature was almost a degree colder than the previous record, reports CBS.

CBS News poll results

Last week, President Obama signed historic health care reform legislation into law -- but his legislative success doesn’t seem to have helped his image with the American public, reports CBS. The latest CBS News Poll, conducted between March 29 and April 1, found Americans unhappier than ever with Mr. Obama’s handling of health care - and still worried about the state of the economy. According to CBS, President Obama’s overall job approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 44 percent, down five points from late March, just before the health bill’s passage in the House of Representatives. It’s down 24 points according to the report since his alltime high last April. Forty-one percent of those polled said they disapproved of the president’s performance.

How the RNC spends $2.99 a minute

A new entrant in the when-it-rains-it-pours category, writes Ben Smith from Politico. The Republican National Committee sent a fundraising mail piece earlier this month with a return number that leads to a phonesex line, writes Smith, a phone line that offers. “live, one-on-one talk with a nasty girl who will do anything you want for just $2.99 per minute.” “At the bottom of a piece designed to resemble a census form, a toll-free number is listed next to the national party’s address,” writes Smith. “A voter in Minnesota received the mailer and called the number intending to complain about the attempt to raise money with a form that looks like a government document.” In Smith’s report, the Minnesotan was instead directed to a second toll-free number that greets callers as “sexy guy” before offering them the chance to talk with “real local students, housewives and working girls from all over the country.”

Putin nukes, asks Hugo

Russia has offered to help Venezuela set up its own space industry, including a satellite launch site, as Prime Minister Vladimir Putin made his first visit to the South American country on Friday. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced the offer by Russia hours before Putin arrived, saying officials would discuss the possibility of setting up a “satellite launcher and a factory.” “Russia offers help so that Venezuela can have its own industry for the use of its outer space,” Chavez said Thursday night. He didn’t give details or say how much that might cost. The two countries are also discussing new weapons deals, Chavez said in televised remarks, without giving details. Chavez’s government has already bought more than $4 billion in Russian weapons since 2005, including helicopters, fighter jets and 100,000 Kalashnikov rifles. Chavez said last year that Russia agreed to loan Venezuela up to $2.2 billion for additional arms deals.

John Forsythe dead at 92

John Forsythe, the handsome, smooth-voiced actor who made his fortune as the scheming oil tycoon in TV’s “Dynasty” and the voice of the leader of “Charlie’s Angels,” has died after a yearlong battle with cancer. He was 92. Forsythe died late Thursday at his home in Santa Ynez from complications of pneumonia, publicist Harlan Boll said Friday. “He died as he lived his life, with dignity and grace,” daughter Brooke Forsythe said. Despite his distinguished work in theater and films, Forsythe’s greatest fame came from FORSYTHE his role as Blake Carrington in producer Aaron Spelling’s 1981-89 primetime soap opera “Dynasty.” Forsythe lent dignity to the tale of murder, deceit, adultery and high finance, which often brought Carrington into conflict with his flashy, vengeful former wife, Alexis Colby, played to the hilt by Joan Collins. “He was one of the last of the true gentlemen of the acting profession,” Collins said in a statement. “I enjoyed our nine years of feuding, [See THE UPDATE, page 21]

Ski Cup Championship While the University of Colorado’s Katie Hartman took 1st and the University of New Mexico’s Anne Cecille Brusletto placed 2nd, Abby Ghent, from Ski and Snowboard Club Vail, turned her start number 24 into a 1st for the junior women and 3rd place overall. Ghent also had her best point result to date. “Third place for me today was unexpected,” said Ghent. “And being so close to Katie Hartman was also unexpected.

I’m done,” Dockery said yesterday when we caught up with him in his natural habitat, the bar at Paddy’s. “I’ll ski, hunt and fish. I won’t be a hedge fund manager. Maybe a hedge trimmer.” Ralph has been in the local bar business almost since the invention of hops. Besides Paddy’s, he ran Concert Hall Plaza, the Sundance Saloon, the Jackalope and Champions.

Ralph’s sticking around a while to smooth the transition, and because it’s his natural habitat. If something works, you stick with it, so the Swimms are staying with Paddy’s sports bar theme. Some of the photos will stay, some won’t. Sue runs Skye Designs, so she has some ideas for decorating within the sports bar parameters. They’ll upgrade the menu a little bit, and add a few more pub-themed items. The prices will stay reasonable, they said. And best of all, Paddy’s lives.

German chapel becomes Nazi shrine

A chapel built on a mountainside in Germany is turning into a shrine for neo-Nazis after it emerged that it was built with marble and granite taken from the ruins of Adolf Hitler’s luxury retreat, reports the Telegraph. A swastika was reportedly found carved into one of the wooden beams of the Wegmacher Chapel, which was built in 1997, while local residents claim a number of shaven-headed, leather jacket-wearing ‘pilgrims’ leave behind notes of praise to Hitler and candles burning in his memory, according to the Telegraph report. The Telegraph writes that, It was only recently that the Bavarian government admitted that material from the wreckage of Hitler’s retreat, the Berghof in Berchtesgaden, was used in the construction of the chapel. Some of the stones are from the terrace of the Berghof - quarried by Jewish slave laborers in concentration camps.

unique place, he said. “We need to find more sales tax revenue and ways for more businesses to come to town,” Mueller said. “We need to look at what we need to do, and I wouldn’t be afraid to do what needs to be done. The biggest challenge will be keeping the bills paid. But Eagle is has an incredible sense of community, and we need to do whatever it takes to maintain that.”

CYCLOCROSS––––––----------------------------------------[Frompage1] dismount and carry the bike while navigating the obstruction and remount. Cyclocross riders use a road bike outfitted with mountain bike tires. The sport is huge in Belgium, The Netherlands and the Czech Republic, and is quickly gaining popularity in Vermont, New Hampshire and has now made its way out west. The Elite competition will feature local pros Jake Wells, Jay Henry and others. Wells took 12th at the CycloCross National Championships in Bend, Ore. in December. “I started racing mountain bikes when I moved out here in 2001,” Wells said in an interview with the Mountaineer before that race. “Coming from a running background, I decided to give [cyclocross] a try and really liked it. It’s so different than any other kind of cycling; you’re at your limit for the entire race.” This Cult Cross is no longer affiliated with the American Cycling Association, so the “flight” system has been relaxed at the event so to divide up the competitors based on experience rather than age. The “C” Category is primarily for entry level racers, first timers and people who are looking to get some experience racing CX who may have dabbled in other disciplines such as Mountain Biking or road racing who are looking to have fun as well as race. The “B” Category is for the next level racer – consider it a “sport” level or flight for those of you who did not wish to get flogged by the pro riders. The “A” Category is for the elite racers and those that would like to see where they stand against the fastest riders that show up. But this is no longer an ACA sanctioned event, so the emphasis is on having fun. There is also a single-speed event for those who enjoy suffering even more.

some of the best nights I’ve ever had,” he said. Good Times come to Vail Meyer explains that he came from a very musical family. Both his parents played multiple instruments, and his grandfather had band for thirty years. “I always thought music was for sissies; I was always an athlete. I wanted to be a professional baseball player,” Meyer said. “But it turned out I had more talent on stage than I did pitching. I was going to do it for one year [in Mammoth] and thirty years later I’m still doing it.” Thanks to Mammoth’s 1986 drought, which caused most of his gigs that year to be canceled, Meyer made his way to Vail, which had good snow that year. “I was just gonna play the one gig, passing through town… I played Mondays at The Trail’s End, which was the real big bar underneath the gondola,” Meyer said. “And I played seven days a week at the Red Lion also. But I was a little too wild for them.” Asked if he’ll be playing Vail for many years to come, Meyer said he’s been on a year-to-year basis since ’96, and that’s the way it’ll stay. “At the end of the season, man, I don’t look at a shot of tequila for seven more months. In the summer time I’m drinking a gallon of water a day. I don’t even want to look at tequila shots.” Meyer says you should come see one of his shows if you want to laugh, party hard, have a good time and meet a lot of real fun, down-to-earth people. “It’s not an uptight environment at all. Everyone is together; everyone warms up and does shots together. It’s a big family of party animals,” he said. The Good Times Man will be playing his last show of the season today at 5 p.m. at The Club in Vail Village.
