The retirement of Justice John Paul Stevens, the Supreme Court’s leading liberal, touched off an immediate election-year political battle yesterday over President Barack Obama’s second high court pick. Republicans promised trouble for any activist nominee. Obama said he would quickly name a successor in the mold of Stevens, who he said was a voice for ordinary people rather than powerful interests. Eleven days before his 90th birthday, Stevens said he would step down when the court finishes its work for the summer in hopes that a replacement could be confirmed well before the next term begins in October. “We cannot replace Justice Stevens’ experience or wisdom,” Obama said at the White House after returning from Prague where he had signed a nuclear treaty. “I’ll seek someone in the coming weeks with similar qualities: an inde[See THE UPDATE, pages 16-17]

Local water authority reduces debt service rate

Vail Mountaineer

ARRABELLE PENTHOUSE 668 OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY 3PM -5PM

Arrowhead, Beaver Creek, Berry Creek, Eagle-Vail, and Edwards, Avon, Cordillera and Bachelor Gulch residents to see reduced bills starting this week Customers who receive water service from the Upper Eagle Regional Water Authority should notice a decrease in their monthly water service rates this week. The Authority’s Board of Directors approved a 19 percent decrease in the “debt service rate� at their March 25 meeting. The new monthly rate of $3.16 per Single Family Equivalent (“SFE�), down from $3.91 per SFE, went into effect immediately and is reflected on the current (April) billing statement for water service received in March. The Authority provides water service to its six member entities; the metropolitan districts of Arrowhead, Beaver Creek, Berry Creek, Eagle-Vail, and Edwards, along with the town of Avon; as well as to Cordillera and Bachelor Gulch. Operation and maintenance of the water system is provided by Eagle River Water & Sanitation District (“District�) through an Operations Agreement. The debt service rate was implemented in January 2010 to fund payments on bonds that the Authority was issuing which would allow for necessary upgrades to be made to the Authority’s water system. “When each of the Authority’s six members consented to the new rate, we promised to not charge more than the actual cost to repay the bonds,� said Authority Chair Doris Dewton. “The total cost of issuing the bonds was

less than initial projections so it was important to pass those cost savings on to every Authority customer.� According to Becky Bultemeier, District Customer & Financial Services Manager, the $3.91 rate was established several months before the bonds were sold, and was based upon municipal bond interest rates as well as the proposed structure of the bonds, at that time. “Interest rates improved dramatically and the Authority obtained a stand-alone A+ rating from Standard & Poors Rating Agency so the net annual debt service requirement was significantly lower than anticipated several months ago,� said Bultemeier. “The costs of the water system improvements are allocated per SFE to each customer, so the total savings are also spread out among all Authority customers.� While the monthly “debt service rate� was reduced to $3.16 per SFE, other monthly water service rates are unchanged. A “Single Family Equivalent� is a generic Residential Unit, the use of which is estimated to have an impact upon the water system equal to that of the average single family (2.3 persons). One (1) SFE is up to 3,000 square feet. For more information on water service rates, contact the Eagle River Water & Sanitation District Customer Service department at (970) 477-5451.

The wheels will soon begin turning on the second Magic Bus as the mobile pre-kindergarten readiness “vehicle” welcomes a new sibling to the family this month. The Vail Valley Foundation was able to retrofit the second Magic Bus courtesy of a generous grant from Vail Resorts. The Magic Bus program, funded by the Foundation and facilitated by the Youth Foundation, now features a mini-fleet of vans that will travel throughout Eagle County, providing pre-kindergarten-aged children with the opportunity to discover the wonders of learning about their world, encouraging creative expression and nurturing natural curiosity. The second “bus” will be another 18-passenger people mover that served as part of the Beaver Creek Resort Company’s transportation fleet. The seats were removed and the interior turned into a mobile classroom, complete with plasma screens for video and computer monitoring, work and reading space and storage for books and equipment. “Research into school success shows a direct link to the preparation that young children receive from the time they are born until they enter kindergarten,” explained Jean McSpadden, Director of Education for the VVF. “Young children who have the opportunity to engage in stimulating cognitive activities and nurturing social-emotional re-

lationships are already ahead of their peers when they enter kindergarten.” “Studies have proven that for every pre-kindergarten dollar that is spent on our children,” McSpadden continued, “we save up to $17 over time in areas such as special education, health care and social services. Ultimately, the goal is to have a greater high school graduation rate with an emphasis on pursuing a college education.” The VVF initially launched the Magic Bus program in the late

1990’s, consisting of a mobile library that visited preschool centers throughout the valley in an effort to increase the literacy rates for Eagle County children. The program was revamped to focus on pre-kindergarten readiness in 2006, with initial seed funding generated at the annual Korbel American Ski Classic.

Vail helping navigate the cone zone Construction cranks up as ski season winds down By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Vail’s ski season ends in a little more than a week. And with that, construction season begins, and there’s some stuff you should know. First, tourist dollars are the fuel that powers the local economy. Vail called a meeting in town hall to talk to contractors and other professionals in the industry, and provided lots of coffee and donuts to make sure they showed up. The muffins pretty much stayed in the box; this was a donut crowd. “We’ll try to minimize the effect on our guests,” said Tom Kassmall, Vail’s town engineer. Mostly, the Body Politic feels effected by noise and parking, said Steve Wright, commander with the Vail police department. Complainers talk a lot about quality of life issues, like noise and parking. “The town of Vail noise ordinance reads like the wiring diagram of the space shuttle. It’s a little strange,” Wright told the crowd, repeatedly giving them his phone number so they could read it for themselves. The noise is measured by zoning and decibel levels. Where you’re working makes a difference in how much noise you can make. Then there’s parking. “Parking in the town of Vail is a fascinating issue,” Wright said. Fascinating certainly, but not terribly complicated. “Unless you have a permit, on-street parking is not allowed on your construction project,” Wright said. “The issue is when the subcontractors and suppliers show up at your site and they’re stacked three and four deep. That makes guests think they can park there, too.” They cannot, at least not lawfully. The object is to keep people, traffic and disposable income moving smoothly.

“We try to create an atmosphere in which people can come here and spend as much money as possible,” Wright said, cutting to the heart of the matter like a laser. Welcome back Carter Wright and the Vail police officers are happy to deal with theft from construction sites, but would rather not, especially when it’s a self inflicted wound. “Secure your stuff in a box, and secure you box to something immoveable,” Wright said. Besides entire tool boxes, thieves will also steal anything made of copper, Wright said. Then he held up an arrest mug shot of Clarence Carter. Apparently it was one of a rather growing collection of Carter’s mug shots. He steals stuff from construction sites along the I-70 corridor, hauls it CARTER back to the Front Range and sells it, Wright said. The Vail police have arrested him six times, robbing construction sites in Vail, Wright said. “If you see him anywhere near your site, call us as quickly as you can,” Wright said. “He’s good, I gotta give the guy credit. He has stolen a lot of stuff over the years. He’s been arrested for stealing from six different construction sites, just in Vail. Sing a happy song To make sure everyone is singing from the same hymnal, Vail will host weekly construction meetings, beginning next week. The kickoff meeting was Friday morning. The weekly meetings begin Tuesday at 9 a.m., in the Vail Public Library. If your in the construction building industry, or are a neighbor of a construction projects, you’ll do well to be there.

The Solaris Residences in Vail Village unwrapped the southwest corner of the building earlier this year, revealing what the finished project will look like. The recently unveiled wing of the edifice contains the first finished apartment, and those interested in the project are welcome to take a look at what a finished residence will look like at Solaris. The Solaris Residences and Solaris Plaza, scheduled for completion in 2010, will consist of 77 private residences, an open-air ice skating rink, movie theater, bowling alley and retail center. Avery Cunliffe photo.

Free parking starts April 18, after the mountain closes. And one more thing. Builders take note: Those documents that contractors get approved are what they’re expected to build. If they make changes without telling the town’s planning department, it’s not going to go well when it comes time for the town to inspect a project, so people can actually use the building.

Taste test the nation’s best Battle Mountain ProStart team wins 8th state title, heading for nationals By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer If Battle Mountain’s ProStart team is the UCLA basketball of the culinary arts, and they are, then Sharon Wible is the Wizard of Westwood. Battle Mountain brought home its eighth state championship in the program’s 12 years. It goes in the trophy case beside their national championship trophy and two national runner up awards. The team - JonPaul Ferzacca, Zander Lucero, Clint Hervert and Cliff Rodrick will compete for another national championship April 30, representing Colorado as they travel to Kansas City. They’re this good because they practice that hard - four hours a day, beginning at 6 a.m. Try to get teenagers to do anything four hours a day, at least anything that doesn’t involve a reality show or a video game. Wible is the Battle Mountain culinary teacher and runs the school’s ProStart program. She has been around for seven of those state titles. “We have some great help and great mentor chefs,” she said. Four chefs, one goal The four-man team had less than an hour to prepare their state championship three-course meal of smoked trout agnolotti, pan-roasted Colorado lamb loin and marscopone ice box cake. Mentor Chefs Paul Ferzacca, Tom Walker and Todd Rymer help teach them how. If something works, you stay with it, and they’ll prepare the same meal for the judges at the national championships later this month.

Help our chefs

The Battle Mountain ProStart team just won its eighth state title and competes for a national crown later this month. The team needs donations to help pay travel expenses to the National ProStart competition in Kansas City. Contact coach Sharon Wible at sharon.wible@eagleschools.net or 471-3364. “I am so appreciative of the Mentor Chefs giving their time, energy and expertise to help these students fine-tune their skills in order to succeed in competition,” said Wible. “We couldn’t do it without them.” Four chefs, two burners At the nationals, the students are assigned either an appetizer, entrée or dessert. The fourth team member is a floater, helping hold the effort together by assisting the others in prepping the food, finishing their respective dishes and ensuring cleanliness and presentation. It can be stressful. The four-man team creates two full meals on two preparation tables and only two burners. One goes to the judges and one to the presentation table. At the nationals they’ll have two hours, instead of the one hour they had at the state championships. The judging criteria remains the same. Among the criteria on which they’ll be judged are compilation of the menu, knife skills, mise-en-place (everything in its place), sanitation, skill level, taste, teamwork, communication, plate presentation, costing out of the menu and a question/answer session with the judges. The ProStart program was launched by the Colorado Restaurant Association, and has grown into the largest career education program in the country under the National Restaurant Association.

ENTERTAINMENT

Your Saturday night music scene to 11 p.m. in the Middle Room. In the Disco Room, DJ Mo Rockinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; takes it late night spinning all your favorite party jams.

Brought to you by Geoff Mintz GM@VailMountaineer.com

dynamic and new members. JBB found itself pushing more at the edges of reggae. New songs incorporated slinkier bass lines, denser instrumentation, less predictable rhythms. Beats became funkier, more drum-andbass inflected. The show starts at 10 p.m.

Tyler T loves the the aggressive acoustic guitar sounds of songwriters like Ani DiFranco, Keller Williams and Kaki King. There are also traces of high energy electronica and techno beats rumbling under the grooves he creates, and he draws inspiration from Classical and Avant Garde music, as well as music from all over the world. Tyler gets his vocal timbre from growing up listening to early grunge and his improvisational spirit from listening to artists like Frank Zappa and the Grateful Dead. He has held on to a musical vibe that has an â&#x20AC;&#x153;organicâ&#x20AC;? feeling. He has always been fond of using sounds that have certain earthy tones to them such as natural percussion (marimbas and xylophones), woodwind instruments, and acoustic instruments. The show starts at 9 p.m. and is free.

Lotus at Copper

Never a group to be pigeonholed, Lotus brings many musical weapons to the stage. From festival stages such as Rothbury, Wakarusa and Red Rocks to theaters across the country the band has left grinning crowds dripping with sweat. Equal parts dance and rock, Lotus has been crafting a unique brand of instrumental rock for the past decade. The big light show and pounding beats may be club inspired, but the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to connect with the audience through emotive composition and dynamic improvisation pushes performances past the elusive barrier dividing concert and experience. $20 ticketed show tonight at â&#x20AC;&#x153;10 pm-ishâ&#x20AC;?, followed by free show tomorrow at 5:30 p.m.

John Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Body at Sandbar, West Vail

John Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Future Rootsâ&#x20AC;? uses reggae as a foundation, but incorporates dub, drum and bass, dancehall, hip hop and other musical experiments and exploration to create a sound both timeless and forward. JBBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s live show has the kind of organic, body-rocking sound thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only possible with an 8-piece band where air tight drum and bass, a three piece horn section, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most gorgeous melodies in all of modern reggae musicâ&#x20AC;? meet a dubbed-out sound engineer. In 2006, John Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Body found itself at a crossroads, when the death of bassist Scott Palmer broke the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart. After the tragedy, several longtime members left the group. But, a strange thing happened to the band staring at its own mortality: somehow, JBB emerged transformed and inspired. A vital, creative energy sprang from the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new

Show starts at 10 p.m. with cheap drinks as always.

Remember these guys? Seven Mary Three, an American rock band with the hits â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cumbersomeâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge,â&#x20AC;? are scheduled to play 5:45 p.m. Seven Mary Three are a quintessentially American band. Guitar. Guitar. Bass. Drums. An arsenal of chords and the truth. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this simplicity coupled with a bond with each other and their fans over a fifteen year career that has kept the band moving forward long after many of their contemporaries have disbanded. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their personal powerful songs that have sustained the band through mainstream flirtations with ska, swing, electronica and emo (whatever the hell that is). Salem opens at 4 p.m. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played Main Street Grill a few times. E-mail your music events to gm@vailmountianeer.com

Tiger Woods has never lost when going into the weekend in a tie for third or better, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where he finds himself this year. Woods shot two under 70 in the second round, a solid performance containing 3 birdies and just 1 bogey. Nearly everyone is surprised about how well Woods is playing except him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I usually put myself in contention most of the time here,â&#x20AC;? Woods said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And this year, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m right there.â&#x20AC;? In the most compelling Masters in recent history, two faces of Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Lee Westwood and Ian Poulterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;handled a tougher Augusta National yesterday to share the lead as both chase their first major championship. Poulter, who once boasted that it would be just him and Woods when he reached his potential, made his only bogey on the 18th hole for a second straight 68. Westwood had everything from an eagle to a double bogey in his wild round of 69. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget about Phil Mickelson. Mickelson needed a birdie on the 18th hole to be paired with Woods, just as they were in the final round last year. His 65-foot putt banged off the back of the cup before spinning away, giving Lefty a one under 71. Woods and Mickelson are at 138, along with K.J. Choi, Ricky Barnes and Anthony Kim, who is coming off a victory last week in the Houston Open. Y.E. Yang, who beat Woods at the PGA Championship last year, shot 72 and is at 5-under 139. The sentimental favorites, Fred Couples and Tom Watson struggled on Saturday shooting 75 and 74 respectively. They are both five shots back at -3. There were no planes toting suggestive banners Friday, only lots of applause. Tiger will be paired with K.J. Choi again on Saturday afternoon. Woods played the first two rounds with Choi who matched the world No. 1 shot for shot.

NEWS

By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer The Steadman Clinic is getting involved with the STOP Youth Sports Injuries program, a national, multicenter site study to help prevent overuse injures in baseball-playing kids. Dr. Peter Millet of the Steadman Clinic is helping bring the program to Vail by providing coaches’ sessions as well as young athlete screens through WECMRD. Dr. Millett was recently interviewed about this increasingly prevalent issue for an article published last week in the Wall Street Journal. “Surgeons say the incidence of youth sports injuries is rising. Some of the increase comes from the growing number of kids who participate in sports. Another factor is the increasing number of kids who specialize in a single sport at young ages and who play year-round,” Robert A. Guth MILLET writes in “Red Flag on Kids, Sports and Injuries,” published in the Wall Street Journal. “They’re putting more stress on their growing skeletons,” Dr. Millett says in the piece. “We’re seeing injury patterns that we haven’t seen before at high levels.” The STOP Sports Injuries campaign will educate athletes, parents, trainers, coaches and health care providers about the rapid increase in youth sports injuries, the necessary steps to help reverse the trend and the need to keep young athletes healthy. The campaign’s highlights include teaching proper prevention techniques, discussing the need for open communication between everyone involved in young

athletes’ lives, and encouraging those affected to sign The Pledge, available on the organization’s Web site, www.STOPSportsInjuries.org. Sports injuries among young athletes are on the rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), high school athletes, alone, account for an estimated two million injuries, 500,000 doctor visits and 30,000 hospitalizations every year. “Our goal is to make sports safer for kids and to prevent injuries. We endorse an active lifestyle and clearly support the health and leadership skills that sports provide, but at the same time we also want to provide better prevention, understanding, and treatment for athletic injuries in our youth,” said Millett. The high rate of youth sports injuries is fueled by an increase in overuse and trauma injuries and a lack of attention paid to proper injury prevention. According to the CDC, more than half of all sports injuries in children are preventable. “Regardless of whether the athlete is a professional, an amateur, an Olympian or a young recreational athlete, the number of sports injuries is increasing – but the escalation of injuries in kids is the most alarming,” said Dr. James Andrews, president of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and STOP Sports Injuries Co-Campaign Chair. “Armed with the correct information and tools, today’s young athletes can remain healthy, play safe, and stay in the game for life.” Supporting the STOP Sports Injuries campaign are the country’s leading sports medicine organizations along with professional athletes and business leaders who have signed on as members of the campaign’s Council of Champions. This Council will help raise additional awareness about this growing epidemic of youth sports injuries. Some of the founding members of the Council include former Olympic champions Christie Rampone, Eric Heiden and Bonnie Blair, professional golfer Jack Nicklaus, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr, MLB baseball player John Smoltz, NFL Hall of Fame defensive end Howie Long, and Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford.

THE UPDATE

pendent mind, a record of excellence and integrity, a fierce dedication to the rule of law and a keen understanding of how the law affects the daily lives of the American people.”

Stupak retiring from Congress

Rep. Bart Stupak insists that tea party activists outraged over his crucial support of health care legislation didn’t run him out of office, but his decision to retire gives conservatives a rallying point as they target Democrats in the midterm elections. The congressman, an anti-abortion Democrat whose high-profile role in the “Obamacare” debate earned him enemies on the left and the right, said Friday that he’s leaving because he’s tired and has accomplished his No. 1 goal: improving health care. “The tea party did not run me out,” Stupak told The Associated Press in a phone interview. “If you know me and my personality, I would welcome the challenge.” Stupak had been a consistent landslide winner in his sprawling northern Michigan district, and the opening now offers Republicans a ripe opportunity to regain a seat they held for decades until Stupak prevailed in 1992.

Liz getting re-re-re-re -re-re-re-re-hitched

Dame Elizabeth Taylor may soon be walking down the aisle ... for the ninth time, reports Us Magazine. A source close to the Oscar-winning actress, 78, tells Us Magazine exclusively that Taylor recently got engaged to Jason Winters, 49, of Sterling Winters Management. Taylor -- who now predominantly uses a wheelchair -- and Winters -- who recently became Janet Jackson’s new manager -- have yet to confirm the news, according to Us Magazine. Another insider, said in Us Magazine’s report: “It’s no secret that they’ve been together forever and are in love, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they were engaged. Right now they are keeping it between them.”

Obama and Palin mix it up

President Barack Obama and Republican Sarah Palin sparred from a distance over nuclear policy with each questioning the other’s experience on the issue in a potential preview of the 2012 White House race. “Unbelievable,’’ Palin said earlier this week after Obama rewrote the U.S. nuclear strategy, and she suggested the president was weak on nuclear defense.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Obama, in Prague to sign a nuclear reduction treaty with Russia, countered by deriding the former Alaska governor who resigned midway through her first term as ‘’not much of an expert’’ on nuclear issues. Palin then shot back yesterday during a speech to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans with a reference to Obama’s early career choice. Mocking the president, she dismissed ‘’all the vast nuclear experience that he acquired as a community organizer.’’ Playing out over several days and across the globe, the spat foreshadowed what the country could see come the next presidential race should Palin run for president and win the GOP nomination.

Qatari comedian banned from United return flight

A Qatari diplomat who created a bomb scare midflight earlier this week tried boarding the same airline for his return flight to Washington. United Airlines said, “No.” United spokesman Mike Trevino says they banned Mohammed Al-Madadi (Al-Mah-DAH-dee) from a United flight Thursday because he violated airline and Federal Aviation Administration policies when he tried smoking on a flight from Washington to Denver Wednesday. When caught, Al-Madadi’s awkward joke about setting his shoes on fire prompted a bomb scare and an F-16 escort to Denver International Airport. The U.S. is not filing charges against the diplomat after receiving assurances from Qatar that Al-Madadi will be sent home, officials said.

Netanyahu to skip nuke conference

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to abruptly cancel a trip to a nuclear conference in Washington spotlighted a key sore point Friday in international nonproliferation efforts: Israel’s own atomic weapons. The Jewish state wants to help lead the charge against allowing nuclear weapons to end up in undesirable hands, even when nobody doubts that Israel itself possesses them. An Israeli official said Friday that Netanyahu called off his trip after his government received word that participants at next week’s conference would “push an Israel-bashing agenda.” He and other officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the government’s reluctance to allow its members to speak publicly about nuclear-related issues.

President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel has withdrawn her bid for confirmation, after several Republicans objected to her criticism of the Bush administration’s terrorist interrogation policies. Dawn Johnsen’s withdrawal -- a setback for the Obama administration -- was announced late yesterday by the White House on a day the capital’s legal and political elites were absorbed in the news that Justice John Paul Stevens would retire from the Supreme Court. The Senate Judiciary Committee had recommended Johnsen’s confirmation on party-line votes. But several Republicans objected to her sharp criticisms of terrorist interrogation policies under President George W. Bush, and the full Senate never voted on her nomination.

Gas hits $9 a gallon in UK

The $9 gallon arrived at Britain’s petrol pumps yesterday as motorists ­continue to be hammered by Labour, reports the Daily Express. Unleaded hit an average of 119.9 pence a liter for the first time ever, breaking the previous July 2008 record of 119.7 pence. But some gas stations are already charging 131.9 pence a liter – or just a penny short of the $9 a gallon, reports the Express. “This is a dark day for Britain’s hard-pressed motorists,” said the RAC in the Express, and there is worse to come, warned experts Thursday night.

Coca Cola and Innocent Drinks

US soft drinks giant Coca-Cola has taken a majority stake in fast-expanding British smoothie maker Innocent Drinks, but its founders said yesterday, according to an Agency French Press report, that operational control would stay in their hands. Coca-Cola increased its stake in Innocent to 58 percent, one year after taking an initial 18 percent share, reports the AFP. In a statement, cited by the AFP, Innocent’s three cofounders said they would continue to run their ethically minded company -- which donates 10 percent of its profits to charity -- despite their reduced holdings.

In a speech delivered in Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s hometown, Clinton hailed the treaty signed by U.S. and Russian leaders on Thursday as the “latest chapter in a history of American nuclear responsibility” supported by presidents of both parties and strong majorities in Congress. The nuclear arms pact now faces a ratification vote in the U.S. Senate, which is near gridlock on many issues, and the Russian legislature.

after the Nov. 5 shooting spree that left him paralyzed. He is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. Yesterday Hasan was moved to jail from a military hospital and early reports by CBS that Hasan may have been paralyzed from the waist down were validated. Hasan was most likely paralyzed by the shots fired from police officers that ended his killing spree.

Gingrich on Obama

Phoebe Prince, the Massachusetts high school freshman who took her own life after what prosecutors called relentless bullying by classmates, spoke to a school administrator one week before her death about a threat of physical violence, court documents reveal. The documents, filed in connection with charges against six South Hadley High School students, raise new questions about how much school officials knew about the bullying. They also provide a glimpse into the final, tortured hours of Prince’s life shortly before the 15-year-old hanged herself at home Jan. 14. On Jan. 7, according to the documents, Prince went to a school administrator after learning that one of the defendants, Flannery Mullins, had told fellow students that she was going to “beat Phoebe up” and that she “needed to watch out at break after second block.” The documents do not reveal the official to whom Prince spoke or provide details of the conversation.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a potential presidential candidate in 2012, called Barack Obama on Thursday “the most radical president in American history” who oversees a “secular, socialist machine.” Gingrich reminded conservative activists why he was one of the nation’s most polarizing leaders in the 1990s, opening the Southern Republican Leadership Conference with a biting assessment of Obama’s policies. “The most radical president in American history has now thrown down the gauntlet to the American people: ‘I run a machine. I own Washington and there’s nothing you can do about it,’” Gingrich said. He urged his fellow Republicans to stop what he called Obama’s “secular, socialist machine.”

Jimmy Kimmel fired

A longtime Colorado judge has been fired after issuing an arrest warrant for a teenager over an overdue library DVD. Municipal Judge James Kimmel issued the warrant after 19-year-old Aaron Henson failed to show up in court Jan. 14 over the overdue DVD, “House of Flying Daggers.” On Jan. 25, police stopped the teen for speeding and held him for nearly eight hours after discovering the warrant. Henson had moved and didn’t receive the summons to court. The teen said he had packed the DVD in a box, and returned it about a week before Henson issued the warrant. The library notified the judge the DVD was back. The Littleton City Council fired Kimmel, a judge for nearly 30 years, at its meeting Tuesday night. Kimmel declined to comment to The Denver Post.

Fort Hood terrorist paralyzed from waist down

The Army psychiatrist charged in a deadly shooting spree at Fort Hood will be kept isolated from other inmates at the Texas jail where he’s been transferred. Maj. Nidal Hasan was airlifted from a San Antonio military hospital to the Bell County Jail in Belton at about 4 a.m. Friday. Sheriff Dan Smith says Hasan will be kept in a cell in the jail infirmary and will be under 24-hour watch. Smith did not say whether Hasan is under guard because of fears for his safety or others. Hasan had been at the military hospital since shortly

Michelle O. to visit Mexico

First Lady Michelle Obama flies to Mexico City on Tuesday for her first solo international trip, which will include events with youths, women, and dinner with Mexican President Felipe Calderon and his wife, Margarita Zavala, writes Lynn Sweet of Politics Daily. That dinner will be at Los Pinos, the official Mexican presidential residence. President Obama and Mrs. Obama will reciprocate on a grand scale when they host a state dinner for Calderon and Mrs. Zavala at the White House on May 19. Mrs. Obama has never been to Mexico, and the Tuesday-Thursday visit will draw enormous interest, according to Sweet’s report. “It will be on the front pages of every single newspaper in Mexico,” Mexico’s ambassador to the U.S., Arturo Sarukhan, told Sweet when they talked on Thursday in the Mexican Embassy a few blocks from the White House. According to Sweet, Mrs. Obama’s stay in Mexico City is designed to emphasize the close relationship between the two countries, even as leaders of both nations wrestle with the cross-border problem of drug use in the U.S. and escalating violence among drug cartels in Mexico.

Kerrigan’s brother charged with manslaughter

The brother of figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was

[From page 1]

charged with manslaughter in the death of their 70-yearold father in what prosecutors called a drunken rage during a trivial argument over use of the family telephone, the Middlesex, Mass. district attorney’s office said Thursday. Mark Kerrigan, 45, was indicted by a Middlesex Superior Court grand jury in the Jan. 24 death of Daniel Kerrigan. He had already been charged with assault and battery on an elderly person resulting in serious bodily injury. Since being released on bail after a psychiatric evaluation, he has been living with his mother in the family’s Stoneham home, where the alleged assault took place.

Ballan suspended amid doping investigation

BMC Racing has suspended former cycling world champion Alessandro Ballan because of his implication in a doping investigation in Italy, the American team said on Friday. Ballan, 30, and Mauro Santambrogio, who has also been suspended, are both former members of the Lampre team which has been targeted by the investigation. “It has come to our attention that two of our riders, Alessandro Ballan and Mauro Santambrogio, are the subject of an investigation by Italian authorities stemming from incidents that took place more than two years ago,” BMC team president Jim Ochowicz said in a statement. “The BMC Racing Team and its members were not aware of this investigation until a few days ago and we hope to obtain more information about the proceedings. However, we have already made the decision to withhold the two from competition, in accordance with the BMC Racing Team’s own policy and the UCI’s Code of Conduct.”

Rodriguez wins stage-5 of Basque Country, Valverde leads

Joaquim Rodriguez of Spain won the fifth stage of the Tour of the Basque Country on Friday ahead of compatriot Samuel Sanchez. Another Spaniard, Alejandro Valverde who finished third, retained the overall lead. Rodriguez crossed the finish alone after 170 kilometers in the historical Basque Country in Northern Spain. Samuel Sanchez crossed 14 seconds later to take second place, while Alejandro Valverde, Chris Horner and Sandy Casar came in 20 seconds off of the lead to keep the general classification stable. The stage was marked with a long escape consisting of Txurruka, Albasini, Rabunal, Calzati, Russ, Martinez, Kolobnev, Navarro, Efimkin and Loosli. Txurrka was the last to retire even though he had a fall while leading the race. Today’s sixth and final stage is a 22 km time trial. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Where to get wooden skis If you want to participate in the first annual Jimmie Heuga Memorial Vintage Ski Race, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can track down the old gear, Richard Allen has a limited supply of wood and medal skis that he is willing to bring to the race. You can rent skis from his company â&#x20AC;&#x153;Richard Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vintage Ski World,â&#x20AC;? but you must get in touch with him this morning. His number is 1-800 332-6323.

Local Sarah Will inducted The adaptive skiing champions are the first to be named to the Hall of Fame since the late Diana Golden Brosnihan was named in 1997. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the largest class of inductees since 1984 for the Hall of Fame, which is located Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Upper Peninsula â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the birthplace of organized ski competition in 1905. Sarah Will was paralyzed in a skiing accident in 1988 and won 12 medals competing at four Paralympic Games. She swept the gold medals at Salt Lake City in 2002. Shortly after her accident she read Hall of Famer Hal Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Learyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book on adaptive skiing and started to train at Winter Park in Colorado. Within three years she won gold medals in the downhill and super G at the 1992 Paralympic Games. With Waddell, she started an adaptive skiing program at Vail and was recently recognized by the United States Olympic Hall of Fame to go along with honors accorded her in 2004 by the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chris Waddell and Sarah Will were model athletes,â&#x20AC;? said U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association President and CEO Bill Marolt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only did they have the perseverance and drive to accomplish great athletic goals, but both have given back to their sport their entire careers. It was an honor to work with them as members of the U.S. Adaptive Ski Team.â&#x20AC;? The late Stu Campbell lived in Stowe, VT and was a writer, instructor and resort executive who impacted millions of American skiers over a career that spanned five decades.

Heuga, who won Olympic bronze in the 1964 slalom behind teammate and silver medalist Billy Kidd, dedicated his life to bettering the lives of multiple sclerosis victims after becoming afflicted with the disease himself. Nominations for Honored Membership in the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame are received throughout the year from across the country. A Selection Committee under the chairmanship of Paul Bousquet reviews all nominations. Successful nominations are placed on a ballot that in 2009 was voted on by a panel of 100 electors. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class brings the number of Honored Members to 368. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The U.S. Ski Team Press Office contributed to this report
