Valley to see best mountain bike race series ever in 2010

Following success of 2009, Vail Rec District adds new categories, reserves date for possible new race Philippe Courtois of the Vail Mountain Cycling Team participates in last year’s Vail Rec District “Hammer in the Hay” mountain bike race at 4Eagle ranch near Wolcott. VRD announced this year’s race lineup yesterday; the Hammer in the Hay is scheduled for May 26, along with a possible new race on Aug. 8. Avery Cunliffe photo.



By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer The 2010 Vail Recreation District (VRD) Mountain Bike Race Series has been growing every year, and with an extended schedule and additional race categories announced yesterday, this year should be the best year yet.

Last year, the VRD race series grew 14 percent in adult riders with over 1,500 racers competing for $5,200 in cash and $30,000 in prizes. Meanwhile, the Youth Mountain Bike Series grew a whopping 41 percent, with nearly 200 riders ages 8 to 14 racing on many of the same trails as the expert and professional racers.

The index had briefly dropped under 11,000 with about 15 minutes to go in trading. The Standard and Poor’s 500 Index also hit a new post-crash high, but failed to top 1,200, which it hasn’t passed in more than 18 months. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 8.62, or 0.08 percent, to 11,005.97. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 2.11, or 0.18 percent, to 1,196.48.

Hidden Gems advocates bring their cause back to the county commissioners today. The Eagle County commissioners are holding a work session today at 1 p.m., where the wilderness advocates will talk about how they’re doing with it all. Today’s work session is not a public comment session. The board will not – repeat NOT – be making a decision today. “We have public input every Tuesday at our regular meeting. We’d enjoy hearing anything they have to say during those times,” said County Commissioner Peter Runyon. “By definition, it’s not impartial. The advocates of Hidden Gems are advocates,” Runyon said. The commissioners have been generally amiable about the Hidden Gems proposal, but have not yet voted whether [See HIDDEN GEMS SESSION TODAY, page 15]

Fruita to tax the terminally ill City’s voters approve 5 percent tax on medical marijuana By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

It sounds like a headline from the Cannabis Chronicle: Fruita to tax the terminally ill. The good citizens of Fruita slapped a 5 percent sales tax on medical marijuana recently. That’s on top of the 2.9 percent statewide sales tax that the potbuying public pays on everything, along with everyone else. Like Colorado in 2000, Fruita took its cannabis question to the voters. In 2000, Colorado voters voted to allow medical marijuana. A decade later, Fruita voters said, “Fine, then we’re going to tax it.” Medical marijuana advocates insist that they’re trying to ease the suffering suffered by those suffering from a chronic condition. They do this by making really good pot available to the pot-buying public. Unlike Eagle County and most other parts of the Great Centennial State, reefer retailers are not popping up like pot plants across Fruita. The city has no medical marijuana dispensaries, aka stoner stores. None are planned. Still, Fruitians appear to be an optimistic lot. They figured they’d raise about $100,000 in the first year after the tax is levied beginning May 1. Fruita city manager Clint Kinney says they’re just trying to get a handle on the broom before they have to use it to clean up the mess reefer retailers will make when they ride the less-than-Welcome-Wagon into town. “The city council wanted to get some local regulation in place before medical marijuana takes off in Fruita like it has in like it has in neighboring Grand Junction,” Kinney said.

The tax will be locally collected, like a tax levied on hotel and motel rooms. Similar taxes are levied in Eagle County. Fruita will use the money to city’s cost to regulate reefer retailers. The city pays for things like background checks on those who want to open stoner stores, and added costs for police to help clean up the mess they make. Unlike the reefer retailers themselves, who insist they’re only in the reefer retailing business for altruistic reasons, Kinney comes right out and admits that the city is taxing medical marijuana because they need the money. “We’ve seen a 30 percent decline in revenue from Dec. 2008 to the present,” Kinney said. But unlike the reefer retailers themselves, Kinney is anticipating no revenues from the tax. Not only does the city have no dispensaries, none are in the pipeline. The town council seems sure they’re coming, though. “The city council was cognizant of the 2000 decision by the voters in this state to allow it,” Kinney said. “They want to make it as safe as possible before they get here.” Fruita is an agricultural community of about 11,000 people, located west of Grand Junction. The tax passed 1,533 to 936. Colorado Attorney General John Suthers ruled that medical marijuana can be taxed. “Colorado law is clear: Medical marijuana, in most instances, should be subject to state and local sales taxes,” Suthers said. “This formal opinion should help clear up many of the uncertainties surrounding the taxation of medical marijuana.”

The deadline to take part in the Town of Vail Community Survey has been extended to April 19 to encourage additional participation. Postcards have been sent to households in Vail and to a sampling of part-time residents. Vail residents are invited to evaluate their satisfaction with transit, parking, snowplowing and other town services; share their thoughts and ideas about the most important issues facing Vail; and sign up to participate in an ongoing review panel to provide feedback on important issues year-round. If you received the postcard mailing, follow the instructions on the invitation to take part. If you didn’t receive the postcard, the Town of

Vail is extending an invitation to the community at large where residents, property owners, business owners and employees are encouraged to participate. To request an online link to the survey, e-mail Suzanne Silverthorn at ssilverthorn@ Mail-back versions are also available upon request. By taking part in the community survey, you’ll be eligible for a

prize drawing worth $500 toward your choice of a parking pass for 2010/11, an Epic Pass for next season or a gift certificate to a Vail business. Last conducted in 2007, the survey is used to evaluate municipal service levels and to identify community priorities. Call (970) 479-2115 for details.

VRD ANNOUNCES MTN BIKE RACE SCHEDULE uled an eighth race at the Boneyard in Eagle. They submitted an application to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) that is still pending. The proposed race trail would run up County Road 21 and come down the Boneyard single-track. Each lap would be about six miles. Sports coordinator for the VRD Beth Papas said they are feeling very positive that the race will be approved in the next two weeks, at which point they will release more details. “We did a post-race survey last year, and one of the questions that we asked was if people would like to see the race series grow. The majority of people said they’d like to see races added,� Papas said. She said that there are quite a few challenges that go along with developing a new racecourse. “Primarily, we need a place with a good staging area, options for a kid’s race and course options for all ability levels. We need to find areas that can accommodate beginners and experts, all the way up to our pros,� she said. In addition to the tentative new race on Aug. 5, the VRD also released the dates of the rest of this year’s races yesterday. The 2010 series dates are as follows: May 26 — Hammer in the Hay, 4 Eagle Ranch near Wolcott June 9 — Eagle Ranch Classic, Eagle Ranch business district in Eagle

Registration open for Science School Summer Youth Programs Gore Range school ‘prepares young explorers for adventure’ Registration is now open for Gore Range Natural Science School’s Summer Youth Programs. The programs, which begin in June and run through August, are designed for students pre-K through the 8th grade interested in different aspects of the natural world. Gina Garrett, Director of Youth Programs at the Science School says the Summer Youth Programs are much more than a typical summer camp. “Campers become troops of explorers with ambitions as large as those of Lewis and Clark, embarking into unknown corners of the forests and mountains, uncovering secrets typically unseen by human eyes,” says Garrett. “Our registrations are limited and are filling up fast.” The 2010 Summer Youth Program Line-up includes: • Earth Keepers – an opportunity for young children, ages 4-7, to get out and explore nature with their parents or grandparents. The Earth Keepers Program is held on Fridays throughout July at Maloit Park in Minturn. • Youth Day Camps – Week long day camps offered for students entering grades 1 through 6 featuring a variety of different themes. Each program is different, focusing on a particular concept or component of our local ecosystem. Detailed information can be found online at • Overnight Camps – Based out of backcountry huts, overnight courses brings students into the backcountry through a range of activities. Different programs are available based on grade level including: • Mountain Quest - Students entering 3rd and 4th grade spend four days and three nights high atop Shrine Ridge. Days are spent exploring the wild lands, following animal trails, navigating with a map and compass, and practicing leadership and teambuilding skills. Evening activities include a night hike, stargazing, and

s’mores and stories around a campfire. • Wilderness Challenge – an overnight camp for students entering 5th and 6th grade. Based out of Vance’s Cabin on Tennessee Pass, students spend a week learning skills for safe backcountry travel, including route finding, Leave No Trace principles, cooking in the backcountry and more. At the week’s end, students challenge their knowledge by planning and carrying out a summit hike on a nearby mountain peak. • Ridge to River – a program for students entering 7th and 8th grade. Students and instructors work together to develop group and individual learning goals for the week. The group works together to overcome obstacles presented by wilderness travel. This camp experience offers adolescents an opportunity to think about themselves and their relationships to others and the natural world in a safe and fun environment. The Science School’s instructors work with students in Eagle County Schools throughout the school year complementing science curriculum adding additional after school programs such as Girls in Science. “Teachers rave about the combination of place-based and inquiry oriented instruction that challenges students to apply scientific concepts in their own backyards, said Garrett, “Summer youth programs builds on these concepts, giving students a chance to explore and adventure on their own terms.” Registration and more information for the Summer Youth Programs can be found at or by calling 970-827-9725 ext. 10. A limited number of scholarships based on financial need are available. A Spanish registration form is available online (Formulario de inscripción para niños campistos disponible por internet)

VR welcomes community to join First Chair celebration Thursday Ski museum and SSV to help recycle old ski gear Vail Resorts, Inc. invites its employees and the community to the groundbreaking event for First Chair, the employee housing project located in Lionshead, on Thursday, April 15 at 5 p.m. Specialty Sports Venture (SSV) and the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum will also participate in the ceremony, and in celebration of Earth Month, kick off a three-day effort to recycle ski and snowboard equipment as well as ski memories. The project is on schedule for a 2011 opening of First Chair, which includes three- and four-bedroom units that will be used to house seasonal and year-round employees. Avon-based R.A. Nelson & Associates is the general contractor. The employee housing project was designed by Oz Architects of Boulder, and Avon-based Mauriello Planning Group provided land planning consultation. The 124-bed, four-story structure, located on the southern end of the pedestrian bridge that crosses Interstate 70, includes parking, skier drop-off spaces, and new snow-melted pedestrian walkways along the south and east sides of the project. “I’m looking forward to bringing our employees and members of the community together to celebrate an incredible winter season as well as the groundbreaking of what will be remarkable housing for our employees in an equally remarkable location,� said Chris Jarnot, SVP and COO of Vail Mountain. Hot dogs and beverages will be served at the event. If you are attending the groundbreaking at 5 p.m., participants are asked to park in the Lionshead Parking Structure (free after 3 p.m.) and walk to the First Chair site. “We’re definitely excited to be building First Chair,� said R.A. Nelson’s Mike Cuthbertson, senior project manager. “Moving forward with a project like this in a time like this demonstrates great optimism. We’re happy to be part of that. And housing employees close to the workplace is a trend we all hope to see more of in this valley.� “As locals, we understand both the need and the challenges of employee housing all up and down this valley. Kudos to Vail Resorts for moving forward with First Chair and addressing that need head on,� added R.A. Nelson President Travis Bossow. According to Susie Tjossem, executive director of the Colorado Ski Museum, the Earth Month event is an opportunity to build the museum’s collection of photos, artifacts and stories.

Annual concert packs Vilar Center with students, fans By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Americans invented jazz, blues, rock & roll and the V-8 engine. Local jazz legend Tony Gulizia and a six-piece combo brought their Jazz Goes to School show to the Vilar Center. They played two hours for 1,000 local school kids. Can you imagine getting 1,000 kids to sit still in their seats for 120 minutes at all? Then add Tony and his band making music that makes the American spirit soar, and you have 550 young Americans bouncing like – well, like they should. Jazz Goes to School was in session, and what a delightful session it was. They played every jazz genre, closing with a set of 12-bar blues fueled by lyrics written by 5th graders. Like all budding artists, the kids wrote about what they know about, like if school gets more boring, they’ll all soon be snoring. Then there was Mr. Fink’s MSU Blues. Fink teaches 5th grade at Gypsum’s Red Hill Elementary School, and is a loyal alumnae of Michigan State University. His Spartans lost by two points to Butler University in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament semi-finals. Tony G launched the program and leads the band, at least as much as a jazz band can be led. “The six of us have been playing together for years now, both with Jazz Goes to School and at other gigs,� Gulizia said. “It’s fun to break out of the elementary schools and share our swingin’ sound with the entire Vail Valley community.� The Jazz Goes to School took the audience through 100 years of American jazz, featuring standards from Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, George Gershwin and John Coltrane, along with some spicy Latin flavors from Tito Puente and Antonio Carlos Jobim.

Andy Hall on bass, Kirk Garrison on trumpet and Roger Neumann on saxophone took center stage a the Vilar Center during the Jazz Goes to School concert. Tony Gulizia’s six-piece jazz combo played shows for local fourth and fifth graders, then a free show Friday night. Tony Gulizia launched Jazz Goes to School, and has taught jazz to more than 10,000 students. Ed Kosmicki photo.

Jazz Goes to School is presented by the Vail Jazz Foundation, a 501c3 charitable foundation dedicated to perpetuating jazz through performances and education. It focuses on young musicians and young audiences. The program educates more than 1,000 fourth and fifth graders annually in the public schools of Eagle County, plus the Eagle County Charter Academy, Vail Mountain School, Vail Academy, Stone Creek Elementary School and St. Clare of Assisi. Since Gulizia launched the program, Jazz Goes to School has exposed more than 10,000 school students to jazz music. The Jazz Goes to School Sextet is comprised of Tony Gulizia (keyboards/vocals), Tony’s brother Joey (drums), Andy Hall (bass), Roger Neumann (saxophone), Kirk Garrison (trumpet) and Michael Pujado (congas and percussion).

Kyle Turley plays Sandbar tonight

Turley was formed in 1975, “when the gates of Heaven & Hell combined to birth into this world a new life that knows no boundaries,” the band says. After dominating the trenches of the NFL, founder Kyle Turley took his musical work of the last 13 years to the streets of Nashville on a quest – a “vision quest.” Never one to be held down by mediocrity or deny himself the opportunity to chase a dream, Turley locked himself in studio with acclaimed producer Brandon Epps and Sam Martin to unleash the most daring country album the world has ever seen, his Web site says. From influences like Hank III, Johnny Cash, Pantera & Slayer, Turley is not one to disappoint live. His band plays Sandbar tonight at 10 p.m.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is ready to play football and will now try to to put sexual assault allegations behind him. Roethlisberger, reading a statement for 74 seconds on Monday night but not taking questions from reporters, said Georgia prosecutors reached the right conclusion by deciding not to charge him in the case. The two-time Super Bowl winner plans to resume working out shortly with his teammates, but did not say when. Roethlisberger, wearing a red sports shirt and light-colored slacks, made his comments from a podium in the Steelers’

locker room, not far from his own locker. “I am excited to get back to work with my teammates, and I’m more determined than ever to have a great season,� he said. Roethlisberger did not discuss his upcoming meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell or any possible punishment that might be brought against him by the league or the team for violating the players’ conduct code. Roethlisberger also is contesting a civil suit in Nevada brought by a woman who is accusing him of assaulting her in a Lake Tahoe hotel in 2008.

It was announced yesterday that Ultimate Fighter Chuck Liddel, left, will face Rich Franklin in UFC 115 instead of rival Ultimate Fighter coach Tito Ortiz.

Liddel to face Franklin Instead of the two coaches from The Ultimate Fighter TV series going at it on PPV, this year coach Chuck Liddel will not face coach Tito Ortiz -- instead Liddel will face Rich Franklin. Franklin, a Cincinnati math teacher turned professional fighter, is stepping in for the UFCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first foray into Vancouver. This comes after president Dana White vehemently denied that Liddell would fight Franklin. No reason has been given as to why Liddell is fight-

ing Franklin, not Ortiz. Presumably, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find out the reasons by continuing to watch this season of TUF. Franklin has been out of action since September, when he was TKOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d by Vitor Belfort in a catchweight bout. Liddell has also been out of the cage for some time, his last bout was in April 2009. He is also coming off of a loss, a knockout by Mauricio â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shogunâ&#x20AC;? Rua.

Cancellara wins Paris-Roubaix Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland won the Paris-Roubaix, the grueling cycling race over cobblestones, Sunday to claim his second victory in a one-day classic in eight days. Cancellara won by two minutes after dominating a field that included three-time winner Tom Boonen of Belgium. The Swiss rider, who won the 2006 Paris-Roubaix, finished first in the Tour of Flanders last Sunday. Thor Hushovd of Norway was second and Juan Antonio Flecha of Spain was third, also two minutes behind. They were followed by Roger Hammond of Britain and Boonen. Cancellara sat up in his saddle and pumped his fists after timing 6 hours, 35 minutes, 10 seconds at the end the 259-kilometer (160.6-mile) course marked by crashes and withdrawals. “I don’t know what I should say,” he mumbled, his eyes welling with tears. Last week, he held off Boonen on the toughest climb of the Tour of Flanders to beat him by more than a minute. The treacherous race, dubbed The Hell of the North, featured 27 treacherous narrow cobblestone paths that totaled 52.9 kilometers (32.9 miles) on the route to Roubaix, in northern France.

cording to Newser. As another terrorist allegedly connected to the plot to attack the MTA was arrested in Pakistan, a fuller picture of their plans is emerging, the New York Daily News reports. From the Grand Central and Times Square subway stations, Zazi and two other men wearing explosive vests reportedly intended to board the 1, 2, 3, and 6 trains at rush hour on Sept. 14, 15, or 16. They planned to detonate their explosives in the middle of the train to ensure maximum casualties. Zazi and his friends were recruited by al-Qaeda for the bombing mission during a 2008 trip to Pakistan. The New York native has been cooperating with police since his arrest last year, writes Newserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick McMaster.

John Welsh was quoted telling the Riverside Press-Enterprise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly, Burmese pythons are not native to Lake Evans.â&#x20AC;? According to KTLA News, Burmese pythons, while very large, are considered docile and easy to handle. The python is being taken care of by animal-control employees. It could be sent to an exotic-pet rescue facility if the owner is not found, according to the Times.

Beware of the Tactical Nuclear Penguin

Thanks to a war among European brewing companies, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been easier to catch a healthy beer buzz, according to TIME magazine. Or, get yourself totally sloshed. In November, BrewDog, a three-year-old Scottish microbrewery, released a new brand, dubbed Tactical Nuclear Penguin. The beer reportedly set a new record by weighing in at a scary 32 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), more than six times the strength of familiar domestic brands like Budweiser. As explained in a cheeky video on the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website (warning: the clip contains simulated penguin sex), the brewery was able to attain the high alcohol content by freezing the beer at a local ice cream factory, at temperatures as low as -6°C (21°F), for 21 days. Alcohol freezes at lower temperatures than water, and removing water from the solution increased the alcohol concentration, according to TIME. Jim Watt, one of BrewDogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-founders, was quoted saying that some 400 bottles of Tactical Nuclear Penguin are in the process of being shipped to a few stores in California and New York City, including a Whole Foods location.

The Vatican has finally made peace with the Beatles, saying their drug use, â&#x20AC;&#x153;dissoluteâ&#x20AC;? lives and even the claim that the band was bigger than Jesus are all in the pastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;while their music lives on. Vatican newspaper Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Osservatore Romano paid tribute to the Fab Four in its weekend editions, with two articles and a front-page cartoon reproducing the crosswalk immortalized on the cover of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s album â&#x20AC;&#x153;Abbey Road.â&#x20AC;? The tribute marked the 40th anniversary of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true, they took drugs; swept up by their success, they lived dissolute and uninhibited lives,â&#x20AC;? said the paper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They even said they were more famous than Jesus,â&#x20AC;? it said, recalling John Lennonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1966 comment that outraged many Catholics and others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, listening to their songs, all of this seems distant and meaningless,â&#x20AC;? Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Osservatore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their beautiful melodies, which changed forever pop music and still give us emotions, live on like precious jewels.â&#x20AC;?

Kennedy cousin loses appeal

The state Supreme Court on Monday rejected Kennedy cousin Michael Skakelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bid for a new trial in the 1975 killing of his 15-year-old neighbor, ruling that a claim implicating two other men, including a large black man, was not credible. The court ruled 4-1 against Skakelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request, saying the evidence doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t back up the alternate claim. Skakel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a nephew of Robert Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s widow, Ethel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison in 2002 for fatally beating Martha Moxley with a golf club in a wealthy Connecticut suburb.

Multiple DUI guy hits former judge

The monster from Lake Evans

A man has been charged with driving drunk and hitting the car of a retired Maryland judge who once spared him jail time in previous drunk driving case. The suspect, 45, was scheduled to be in court Wednesday to face trial on eight charges related to the August crash where he hit a car being driven by retired Montgomery County District Judge Edwin Collier. Collier, 86, and his wife Ellen Collier, 82, were both injured in the crash. Collier presided over a case in 1998 in which police charged the man with drunk driving after an officer saw his car idling in a parking lot and gave him a sobriety test. He pleaded guilty in that case, and Collier spared

They are calling it the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monster of Lake Evans.â&#x20AC;? Authorities over the weekend tell the story this way: On Friday, Riverside County, Calif. animal-control officials got a report of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;20-foot snakeâ&#x20AC;? roaming around Lake Evans. Authorities went out to investigate. They found a 60-pound, 15-foot-long python, according to the LA Times. Officials reportedly believe the owner of the python dumped the animal at the lake. There had been earlier reports of people noticing a large snake in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were no reports of it feeding off any of the lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fowl,â&#x20AC;?

White House will not pick Clinton

The White House says President Barack Obama won’t be nominating Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to the Supreme Court. The idea emerged Monday when Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah said in an interview on NBC’s “Today” show that he’d heard Clinton’s name mentioned in connection with the upcoming vacancy on the court. Justice John Paul Stevens is retiring this summer and Obama is reviewing candidates to succeed him. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters Monday that Obama has no intention of changing Clinton’s job title. Said Gibbs: “The president is going to keep her as his secretary of state.”

Liz is not engaged

Seems like the 9th time won’t be the charm for Elizabeth Taylor, according to Newser. The 78-year-old dispelled reports that she planned to tie the knot with Jason Winters, 49, on—where else?—Twitter. “ The rumors regarding my engagement simply aren’t true,” she was quoted tweeting. “Jason Dame Liz Taylor, 75, and is my manager and dear- her would-be fiance, milest friend. I love him with lionaire businessman Jason Winters, 47. all my heart. “

Conan going cable

The late-night guessing game is over, with a startling twist: Conan O’Brien has chosen TBS as his future talk-show home. Expected to debut in November, the as-yet-untitled show will return O’Brien to the air after an absence that began in January when he abruptly left NBC, his employer of 17 years. O’Brien’s new program will air Mondays through Thursdays at 11 p.m. Eastern, which will shift “Lopez Tonight,” starring George Lopez, from 11 p.m. EDT to midnight. O’Brien’s show will originate from Los Angeles, where he moved from New York for his short-lived stint hosting “The Tonight Show.” For the second half of each show, he will face off against Jay Leno, who replaced him. The five-year contract gives O’Brien ownership of the show, according to a person familiar with the deal. Upon TBS’ announcement Monday, O’Brien quickly fired out a celebratory tweet. “The good news: I will be doing a show on TBS starting in November! The bad news: I’ll be playing Rudy on the all new Cosby Show,” he posted on Twitter.

China looking like a ski town

China has made astounding advances in recent decades, but a destabilizing gender imbalance threatens the country’s progress, according to Newser.

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

[From page 1]

The one-child policy combined with a marked preference for sons has reportedly led to skewed gender ratios: in some areas, up to 168 males for every 100 females. Authorities fear young men who are unable to find a woman to marry will turn to crime, war, and the vast prostitution market, reports the Daily Mail, a British newspaper. More disturbing, the desire for sons fuels a black market in male children that sees an untold number of sons kidnapped from their parents every year. The fear of abduction is so great that some parents keep their kids in cages or tethered to posts. “The police, of course, say they are looking, but they have seen so many of these cases they are numb,” the father of a kidnapped child was quoted saying. “When it comes to keeping the lid on this, the government wants peace and quiet.”

Soon nothing will be safe

Simply turning on a light at night for a few seconds to go to the toilet can cause changes that might lead to cancer, scientists claim, according to the Daily Mail, a British newspaper. Researchers in the UK and Israel reportedly found that when a light is turned on at night, it triggers an ‘over-expression’ of cells linked to the formation of cancer. Previous research has linked an increased risk of breast cancer and prostate cancer in workers exposed to artificial light on night shifts, according to the Mail. But researchers were quoted saying the latest research is the first that shows even short-term exposure can be linked to an increased risk of cancer. The tests were carried out on mice at Leicester University by geneticist Professor Charalambos Kyriacou. During the trial, a group of mice were exposed to a light for one hour. When compared with mice who had been kept in the dark, changes were found in cells in the brain responsible for the circadian clock which controls body function.

Chaos coming to Oregon

Klamath County School officials are considering cutting the school week to four days to save the district $6.3 million annually. The Herald and News reported that the shortened week is one of many money-saving measures school officials are considering. District Superintendent Greg Thede says that a $5.8 million cut to his $60 million budget and nearly 20 layoffs last year prompted the district to form a committee to study the option of cutting Fridays from the school week. He says that school days Monday through Thursday would be longer to meet state hourly requirements. “I think we’ve seen all over the state, programs getting cut, class sizes going up, employee groups having to make concessions,” Thede said. “These times we’re going through right now are unprecedented. It’s tough.” But there are concerns from the Klamath Falls Association of Classified Employees, the union that represents classified staff, such as teaching assistants, cooks, custodians, secretaries and bus drivers. Union President Linda Braden says one less day in the week will mean a day less of work for 380 classified staff. Still, Thede said the district will move forward with a shortened school week if it would save a significant amount of money. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Backed by Boulder’s Jared Polis Hidden Gems backers sent a proposal to Rep. Jared Polis, the Boulder Democrat, who they want to champion their cause to add 243,000 acres of wilderness in his congressional district - 204,000 acres in Eagle County and the rest in Summit County. They sent the proposal on March 31, but didn’t notify the On the day the story broke, Polis held his only Easter break public forum off the Front Range in Frisco. Hidden Gems opponents say they put together more than 100 people who were able to make that meeting. “It seems obvious that the White River Forest Alliance and Hidden Gems are farther apart on the critical nature and importance of the local voice at this transitional stage than I had hoped,” said Jack Albright, WRFA vice president. “I am saddened that what could have truly been a new standard for public outreach has been sabotaged for what seems to be the interest of a timeline.” The rest of the proposed Hidden Gems wilderness acreage is in Gunnison, Garfield and Pitkin counties, which fall in Rep. John Salazar’s 3rd congressional district. Salazar has said there are areas he supports, some need more work, and some are out of the question. The total acreage for Hidden gems has always been a moving target, said Allyn Harvey with Hidden Gems. “We’re in discussions with the White River Forest Alliance about making adjustments to areas heavily used by snowmobilers,” Harvey said. “We’ve let the congressmen and senators know that there will further changes and adjustments.” The White River Forest Alliance opposes Hidden Gems and is trying to keep the process in the public eye, said Tony Fisher, White River Forest Alliance president. “We’re hoping to turn it into more of a public process than it has been,” Fisher said. “We’ll continue to talk to Polis and push for more public meetings, which we feel have been lacking in this process.” Wilderness advocates have said that with the current administration and Democrats controlling both houses of congress, their timing is right. It might be much more difficult after the November election. The land in Eagle and Summit counties are in either the White River National Forest or in lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management. Most of the pro-

Survey shows support for Hidden Gems, backers say Hidden Gems advocates hired a survey firm and today will release the results of a telephone survey. The poll questioned voters across the 2nd Congressional District, and they say it indicates strong support for their wilderness proposal. The poll was weighted to include more input from residents in Eagle and Summit counties, where the proposed wilderness is located.

Hidden Gems proposal for Eagle and Summit counties Seeks wilderness designation for 243,850 acres on White River National Forest and Bureau of Land Management lands. A similar proposal is being crafted in Pitkin and Gunnison Counties, where the rest of the 379,000 acre total is located. Number of areas: • 23 separate areas, including: • 11 additions to existing wilderness areas; • Eight new free-standing wilderness areas; • Two special consideration areas; • One interim protection special management area; • One wildlife land bridge special management area. • Largest area proposed for protection: Red Table at 62,990 acres; • Smallest area proposed for protection: Ptarmigan Peak Wildlife Land Bridge at 270 acres. By location: • 14 areas are in Eagle County, • Nine are located Summit County • 20 areas are in the White River National Forest • 3 areas are on Bureau of Land Management land posal wilderness area is mid-elevation, between 7,800 feet and 11,000 feet in elevation, areas Hidden Gems proponents say is under-represented. Colorado’s congressional delegation will now consider whether to move the proposal forward as federal legislation.


to support it, oppose it or remain neutral. Any support would come in the form of a letter, which they say they have not yet written. “We’ll just listen to their update, so we can determine whether to modify our letter, or whether we’ll send a letter,” said County Commissioner Sara Fisher.
