who will be out and about making sure no one its throwing snowballs or engaging in other forms of “inappropriate behavior.” In case it’s been a little while since you’ve reviewed the old Colorado Ski Safety Act, Vail Mountain is offering a friendly reminder that “using any ski lift or trail while impaired by alcohol or controlled substances is prohibited. Guests are also not permitted to ride lifts, ski or snowboard on Vail Mountain with exposed quantities of alcohol, coolers, suitcase-like carriers, barbeques or similar items.” Security officials were searching all carry-on luggage at Beaver Creek’s closing day. But a spokesperson for Vail says there are no such searches planned for today. One daypack per person (per ride) will be permitted, provided the bag fits in a five-gallon container, according to [See VAIL CLOSES, page 8]

A lingering volcanic ash plume forced extended no-fly restrictions over much of Europe yesterday, as scientists warned that activity at a volcano in Iceland had increased and showed no sign of abating — a portent of more travel chaos to come. Scientists say that because the volcano is situated below a glacial ice cap, the magma is being cooled quickly, causing explosions and plumes of grit that can be catastrophic to plane engines if prevailing winds are right. “The activity has been quite vigorous overnight, causing the eruption column to grow,” Icelandic geologist Magnus Tumi Gud[See THE UPDATE, pages 9-11]

The 09-10 Vail ski and snowboard season ends today. There was a whole lot of grumbling about the snow this year, but, with some late-season storms, the season didn’t turn out so bad. Vail enjoyed 305 or so inches of snow, which is slightly below its average of 350 inches and down significantly from the last two years – both were well above 400. Thanks to some April dumps, the mountain will close today with an ample 52-inch mid-mountain base. Closing Day at Vail is one of the most fun days of the year. There’re plenty of corporately organized events, as well as a fair share of grassroots traditions. Without fail, most of the town will congregate at the top of the mountain, enjoying the final hours of ski season in a tradition known as “4-at-4.” With its celebratory atmosphere, 4-at-4 has grown to attract many Vail’s Finest,

There may be plenty of hints of spring around, there’s also still plenty of time for snowmobile travel before the snow is completely gone. The Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area is very popular for snowmobile use late in the season. Over the past two weeks, back country rangers patrolling the Vail Pass WRA have issued 10 citations for riding snowmobiles in closed areas. With the coming of warm weather, conditions in the Vail Pass area change constantly and trail signing does not always reflect current conditions. Snowmobiles are prohibited in areas where there is less than six inches of packed snow cover. Individual users are responsible for knowing where they can and cannot go in the Vail Pass WRA. Back country rangers patrolling the Vail Pass WRA want to remind all snowmobile users that they must have a valid snowmobile registration, pay the appropriate fees for the Vail Pass WRA, adhere to all travel management regulations and operate only those tracked vehicles designed for over snow travel. Rangers will continue patrols and provide on-site visitor information until the snow melts. Every year there are many cases

of people getting into tough situations on a snowmobile because they are not prepared for the unexpected situations in which they might find themselves. A great recreation experience is one for which you are well prepared and from which you return safely. The Forest Service offers these guidelines for safe snowmobile travel no matter where you are going or how long you intend to be gone. Respect the land – Know where you are going and plan ahead. Where are the Wilderness Areas? Are there travel restrictions in the area you are planning to use? Know the area you are traveling in and stay on legal routes. What does the weather and daily avalanche report say? Always check these reports for your area before you take off. If a winter storm kicks up you could easily become lost in a blizzard. Getting lost in whiteouts can happen to anyone. Respect others – Have a travel plan. Leave a travel plan of your destination and route with your estimated time of return. If you’re hurt, lost or your snowmobile breaks down, searchers will know where to look for you. Always check in when you return so people don’t

start looking for you unnecessarily. Respect yourself – Be prepared and bring a first aid and survival pack. Always carry a first-aid kit, flashlight (with extra batteries), knife, compass, map, waterproof matches (3 or 4 highway flares are a good idea also), an avalanche beacon and portable shovel with a wide scoop. If lost or stuck, this gear in a waterproof stuff sack or bag, along with extra food and water, could mean the difference in your survival. A great way to start planning for a safe and successful snowmobile trip is to consult with the local office of the US Forest Service. Information about Forest Service offices and National Forest opportunities is available on the internet at http:// The Web site of the Colorado Snowmobile Association at http://www.coloradosledcity. com/ is a great place to get up to date trail conditions as well as information on safe and responsible snowmobile recreation. The Colorado Avalanche Information Center at is a good place to get the latest information on avalanche danger and avalanche safety.

$5.2M recycling center open Landfill to host ribbon cutting, tours starting tomorrow By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Eagle County spent $5.2 million for a state-of-the-art recycling facility at the landfill, and they want you to take a look at it. They’ll host a ribbon cutting ceremony 11:45 a.m. Monday at the Materials Recovery Facility. You can tour the facility from 9 a.m.-noon, Tuesday through Thursday, to see for yourself. If you’re a group, call Jesse Masten at 328-3472. The money to build the recycling center came from fees the landfill generates, money raised when people drive their stuff up there and drop it off. It’s designed to process recycled materials collected in Eagle County and the surrounding area. The MRF, not to be confused with a Smurf even though it’s pronounced the same and both are blue, has been running since January. Before the facility opened, all recyclables in the county were trucked to the Front

Prescribed burn planned on BLM land in Eagle County 580-acre fire could take place as early as this week Fire officials with the Upper Colorado River Interagency Fire Management are planning a 580-acre prescribed fire this spring on Bureau of Land Management lands in Eagle County about 1.5 miles south of Burns. The burn could take place as early as this week, depending on weather. The burn will only be initiated if conditions are ideal for a safe and effective fire.

Range or Grand Junction to be sorted and baled, said Ron Rasnic, solid waste manager for Eagle County. “Having this facility removes one of the major barriers to our local recycling programs – the long distance to other markets,” Rasnic said. “We are now able to bring the market to us, reducing costs immensely. Eliminating the transportation problem has removed a large barrier to recycling programs in our area.” At the MRF, collected materials are separated and baled for direct shipment and sale to those who can reuse the materials. For example, paper and cardboard will be sent to paper mills for reprocessing. Glass will be sent to Rocky Mountain Bottling in Denver to be used in manufacturing of beverage bottles. The 14,000 square-foot facility utilizes both mechanized and manual sorting techniques to separate items such as glass, steel, plastic and aluminum containers. Fiber material, newspaper and corrugated cardboard are also processed at the MRF.

the amount of fuel that has built-up in the area. It is targeting oak brush and mountain shrubs. Each prescribed burn conducted by Upper Colorado River has a detailed fire plan developed in advance along with appropriate smoke permits obtained from the state of Colorado. This fire should improve wildlife habitat by stimulating new, more nutritious plant production in the burned area. Because the fire should leave a patchwork of burned and unburned areas, wildlife will

have better areas to feed but also continue to have areas of unburned vegetation that will provide important hiding cover. Since this area hasn’t burned in a number of years, a large amount of debris and other fuels for fires have built-up. This burn will decrease that fuel load, helping reduce the risk of a much larger, unwanted wildfire. For more information about this prescribed fire, call Ody Anderson at 970-876-9030.

The research that reaches real life Steadman Philippon Research Institute has fun answering important questions If they thought they needed something that would help patients, and didn’t have it, they’d invent it. It’s common practice now that immediately after surgery a patient’s injured joint is in gentle, slow and consistent motion. They thought of that. There’s the hip joint they invented, the gadget that keeps weight and pressure off knee joints after surgery, but allow patients to move around normally.

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer It doesn’t seem fair that research this important should be this much fun. Walk into the human performance labs of the Steadman Philippon Research Institute and you see people jumping and running and skating and laughing. Lining one wall are boxes of athletic shoes. Hardware, clamps, screws, duct tape are piled on shelves. In front of you is a drill press and you wonder who they use THAT on? On this day, a group of fifth graders from Eagle Valley Elementary School fired slap shots into the same net as the NHL All Stars who visit. They swing golf clubs on the same spot as PGA and LPGA stars. They throw stuff, they squeeze stuff. The researchers leading the tour measure everything except the giggling, and it always ends with the same question: “What did you just learn?” The kids always had a great answer. Questions, questions, answers Steadman Philippon researchers ask themselves that same question all day every day. Their answers have influenced – some say revolutionized – orthopedics. It’s all based on a simple premise: The body’s healing powers can be harnessed and manipulated to improve the natural healing process. Upstairs, in the offices, the data is analyzed and pored through. Everything leads to something better. In the basement lab they map human movements – motion analysis to make sure athletes are getting the most power and efficiency from every movement. A fifth grader, Alex, was fitted with tiny light reflectors the computers could follow, then nailed a slap shot low on the glove side and into the back of the net.

Those who are great and those who will be all get the same great treatment at Vail’s Steadman Philippon Research Institute. A group of fifth graders from Eagle Valley Elementary School toured the facility, running some of the same tests in the human performance lab as professional athletes. The data researchers collect enables doctors and physical therapists help patients heal more quickly, and helps athletes and trainers prevent injuries. Of the eight gold medals won by U.S. alpine skiers in the winter Olympics, seven were won by athletes treated at Steadman. Avery Cunliffe photo.

On the computer screen afterward, he really did look like Peter Forsberg. It’s the same technology used to create video games and movie special effects. The data help physicians treat injuries, and help athletes and trainers prevent injuries. Gold medals made here Not so long ago, Lindsey Vonn suffered injuries that would have cost her a season, or maybe a career. Instead, she showed up at the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, had the work done, did the rehab like she was supposed to

and is now an Olympic hero. She was in some pretty fast company. In this year’s Olympics, Americans won a record eight medals. Seven of those came through the Steadman center. “Everyone breaks something. What matters is how you put it back together,” said John McMurtry, who coached the Olympic alpine skiing team that set the previous record. “Thirty years ago you were done. Now you expect to come back and bettter than before.” McMurtry now helps run the foundation that helps keep the learning and research rolling.

Evidence-based medicine They do evidence-based medicine at the Steadman Philippon Research Institute. For example, people used to think that anyone over 40 years old should not have their ACL fixed if they blew it out. “We weren’t so certain about that,” McMurtry said. They ran some tests, did some surveys, collected mountains of data and learned that fixing injuries is almost always better. “We found that most patients were doing great as many as eight years out,” McMurtry said. They published their results and changed the way patients are treated – again. History in the making Dr. Richard Steadman played college football for Paul Bear Bryant at Texas A&M. Legend has it that one day Bryant was storming through his troops, grabbed Steadman by the face mask, shook his helmet and barked, “Why are you in college, son?” “I think I want to be a doctor, sir,” the young Steadman replied, sweating under Bryant’s gaze and the Texas sun. “Good!” snapped Bryant. “You’re never gonna be a football player!” As usual, the Bear was right. The rest is history, but it’s history in the making.

Cows are our flatulent friends

Bovines have been absolved as a global warming culprit -- honest The key to fighting global Road warming – if it exists – would be to climb into the cab of your duScholar al-wheeled diesel pickup truck, and drive with your knees as you motor away from the drive-thru window, consuming a balanced diet consisting of a cheeseburger in each hand. Science has found that the noble cow does not cause global warming. Free-range grasslands, vegetables and vegans cause global warming, and not just the ones who so desperately want to sing lead in the End of the World Glee Club. Stay with me. The science is much more sound than any of the science I see associated with any bit of global warming that’s not keeping my cheeseburger warm. Veggies are really bad for you, lethal in fact, but

only if they’re swallowed. People died from e coli after eating spinach, which we always told our mom would happen if we ate spinach. She didn’t believe us, and made us do all sorts of unhealthy stuff, like music lessons and sitting up straight in church. Anyway, singers in the End of the World Glee Club have sung loud and long that meat is bad because cows break wind, producing methane gas. Therefore, they say, cattle cause global warming. Nonsense, according to an exhaustive study of cattle grazed on the grasslands of China, which I trust completely because it tells me what I want to hear. Laughing gas is no laughing matter Grasslands create nitrous oxide, aka laughing gas, which explains why strident vegans are a laughing matter. Nitrous oxide would also contribute to global warming, if any existed. Cows eat grass, and thereby reduce nitrous oxide and other bad stuff that vegetables spew into our fragile atmosphere.

like. They did their research in Inner Mongolia, where they learned that during the spring thaw, free-range grasslands crank out way more nitrous oxide than free-range cows. It turns out that nitrous oxide – aka laughing gas – is released by microbes in the soil. When snow settles on the long grass, it keeps those nitrous-spewing microbes warm and snug. However, when the grass is kept short by grazing animals, the ground freezes and those nitrous-spewing microbes die a horrible but quiet death, sort of like Eliot Spitzer’s political comeback. It also turns out that nitrous-spewing free-range grasslands in places like Inner Mongolia, the U.S., Canada, Russia and China spew forth up to one-third of the total greenhouse gases spewed forth every year. Nitrous-oxide is the third most greenhouse gas after carbon dioxide and methane. So, campers, today we’ve learned that free-range grasslands are fine in their place, but we cannot allow it to run loose out there.

Contador leads Vuelta de Castilla The reigning Tour de France champion shall lurk behind no longer. Alberto Contador won the fourth stage of the Vuelta de Castilla and Leon and took the overall lead yesterday. The Astana rider completed the 9.4-mile time trial around Ponferrada in 20 minutes, 30 seconds. He finished 33 seconds faster than Janez Brajkovic. Igor Anton was third, 54 seconds back. Two-time Tour de France winner Contador took the overall lead from Anton, turning a 13-second overall deficit before the stage into a 41-second advantage. “I raced better than I’d hoped,

because you always have doubts and it was a very hard time trial,” Contador said. “A very good one for climbers.” Ezequiel Mosquera was third overall, 1 minute, 20 seconds behind Contador. On Sunday, Contador hopes to become the first cyclist to win the Vuelta de Castilla and Leon three times.The final stage is a 106.6-mile ride from Samos to Santiago de Compostela. “It will be a very hard day because there will be people who want to break away and the team will have to make a big effort,” Contador said. “But I hope the day will pass without any problems.”

Now Carrying full line of maternity wear & accessories

Alberto Contador is showing great form in the Vuelta de Castilla and Leon race taking over the overall lead after Saturday’s stage-4 win.

Top riders to miss today’s Amstel Gold Alejandro Valverde, Carlos Sastre and Bradley Wiggins will all miss Sunday’s Amstel Gold cycling race because their flights to the Netherlands were canceled due to the volcanic ash cloud disrupting aviation across Europe. The withdrawals were a further

blow to the one-day classic after Lance Armstrong and Fabian Cancellara decided not to take part in the race through the hills around this southern Dutch city. Race organizer Leo van Vliet told Belgian broadcaster VRT on Saturday that Valverde was considered

949-4555 40814 Hwy 6, Eagle-Vail

one of the pre-race favorites. Van Vliet said “there’s nothing you can do about it.” Cancellara decided against racing after winning last week’s ParisRoubaix and the Tour of Flanders a week earlier.

Furyk looking for a bounce back

Jim Furyk is continuing his rebound from a missed cut at Augusta and shot 67 to get to 11-under which is good for a one-stroke lead over Brian Davis (66). Another stroke back were two-time Verizon champ Boo Weekley (68), Stephen Ames (65), Briny Baird (66), Ricky Barnes (66), Luke Donald (67), Woody Austin (67) and Heath Slocum (67). Right behind them at Harbour Golf Links was a group that included Camilo Villegas (67) and 2006 winner Aaron Baddeley. In all, 23 players were within five strokes of the top. Furyk, at No. 6 in the world, is the highest ranked player here following Masters’ week.

Alex Rodriguez hit his 584th home run and first this season, passing Mark McGwire for sole possession for eighth place on the career list. Rodriguez homered off Doug Mathis(notes) in the fourth inning Saturday, a solo drive to right-center that

gave the Yankees a 7-0 lead over Texas. A-Rod had gone homerless in his first 41 at-bats, his longest homerless streak at the start of a season since beginning 1995 without one in his first 48 at-bats for Seattle.

Pond Skimming The entire planet will be watching as the World Pond Skimming Championships, presented by Rockstar, reconvene today. As was the case with last year, enticing people away from the 4 at 4 party is a free BBQ on the ski company’s dime. If you want to attend both parties, it’s worth a shot to grab some Q and then book it up Chairs 6 and 11, both of which Vail Mountain says will be operational until 4 p.m. However, unlike today’s Guster concert, which is scheduled for 4:45 p.m. “promptly” there’s no word yet on exactly when the BBQ will be made available. Pond Skimming will take place at the base of Golden Peak from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Skimmers from all walks of life will test their buoyancy in hopes of becoming the 2010 World Pond Skimming Champion, who will be awarded with not one, but two Epic Passes for next season. Registration is currently full, but it’s a great spectator event. ESPN will be there, so wave to the camera; you might just make it into Sportscenter’s Top 10 Plays. Also, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the sentimental among us will have the unique opportunity to take a commemorative photo sitting on a chairlift chair located next to the legendary Chair 5, which will be replaced this summer by a high-speed quad. Guster closes out Spring Back to Vail In keeping with Vail’s family-friendly vision for these in-town concerts, the season will come to a close with the soft rock of Guster at Checkpoint Charlie. The Boston-based rock band – popularized by prepsters and Ivy-league types in the early part of the last decade – has been likened to what might come about if O.A.R. and Dispatch had spawned love child band. The show will begin “promptly” at 4:45 p.m.

European travelers still grounded

The Icelandic volcano that has kept much of Europe land-bound is far from finished spitting out its grit, and offered up new mini-eruptions yesterday that raise concerns about longer-term damage to world air travel and trade. Facing days to come under the volcano’s unpredictable, ashy plume, Europeans are looking at temporary airport layoffs and getting creative with flight patterns to try to weather this extraordinary event. Modern Europe has never seen such a travel disruption. Air space across a swath from Britain to Ukraine was closed and set to stay that way until Sunday or Monday in some countries, affecting airports from New Zealand to San Francisco. Millions of passengers have had plans foiled or delayed. Activity in the volcano at the heart of this increased early yesterday, and showed no sign of abating.

41 dead from Burqa clad suicide bombers

Two suicide bombers dressed in burqas blew themselves up yesterday in a camp for refugees fleeing military offensives in northwestern Pakistan, killing 41 people and wounding 62, officials said. The blasts occurred at a food distribution point, but there were conflicting reports whether the victims were lining up for food or being registered. The camp is sometimes used by foreign humanitarian groups, including the World Food Program, to deliver aid. Meanwhile, the Pakistani army admitted that civilians were killed in an airstrike last Saturday in the northwest that supposedly targeted militants. It did not say how many had died, but apologized in a rare acknowledgment of an error that could help reduce anger among local tribes, whose support it needs to defeat the Taliban and al-Qaida.

Obama says McConnell being cynical, deceptive

President Barack Obama accused Republicans yesterday of spreading misinformation about a Democratic bill that aims to tighten oversight of Wall Street banks and their practices. “With debate heating up in Washington about reforming the financial rules, regulators charged Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs with fraud on Friday,” reports Reuters. “Bank shares and the broader stock market fell on fears the civil lawsuit could make it more difficult for the financial industry to ward off reform.” Obama said in the Reuters report he still hoped to

win Republican support for the bill but lashed out at Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell, accusing him of making a “cynical and deceptive assertion that reform would somehow enable future bailouts — when he knows that it would do just the opposite.”

Massa denies pay increase for harassed staff member

Former congressman Eric Massa said yesterday that someone forged a $40,000 salary increase for his chief of staff, who has accused the ex-lawmaker of sexual harassment. The New York Democrat also denied authorizing a check from a campaign account in the same amount to the same official, Joe Racalto, according to a statement released by Massa’s attorney. Racalto’s attorney denied the allegations and said both transactions were done at Massa’s direction. The exchange came one day after Racalto reavealed he had filed a sexual harassment complaint against the former congressman, who announced March 5 that he would resign.

Pope trying to make trip to Malta

Pope Benedict XVI yesterday began a pilgrimage in Malta, a Catholic nation buffeted by the worldwide clerical sex abuse scandal and where victims are hoping to meet with him as a way to deal with their pain. Benedict made no direct comments on the scandals during a five-minute appearance to reporters aboard the flight that took him from Rome, nor in his formal arrival remarks before Maltese officials and foreign diplomats at the airport. The overnight trip is his first foreign travels since the full force of the scandals have rocked the church and threatened to engulf his papacy. Benedict, for his earlier roles as an archbishop in Germany and later in his long tenure at the helm of the Vatican morals office, has been accused by victim groups of being part of systematic practice of cover-up by church hierarchy for pedophile priests. The groups are demanding he take responsibility for the Vatican as an institution.

Sudanese President, human rights criminal rigging elections

International monitors said yesterday that Sudan’s first multiparty elections in more than two decades failed to meet international standards, an assessment that diminishes hopes the voting would set the nation on the road to peace and democracy. The conclusions also boosted fears that a flawed vote could fuel violence in the conflict-strewn country,


[From page 1]

where some opposition parties challenging the fairness of the process boycotted all or some of the local and national races. However, the observers did not call for a revote, and instead recommended that lessons drawn from the process be applied to next year’s crucial referendum on southern independence. Another setback for the vote came yesterday from a prominent opposition party, which said it would not recognize the election results, citing allegations of vote rigging by President Omar al-Bashir’s National Congress Party.

Karzai trying to repair rigged electoral system

President Hamid Karzai took key steps toward reforming the country’s electoral system Saturday, naming a respected former judge to head Afghanistan’s election-organizing body and backing down from a bid to keep international representatives off a separate team that monitors fraud. The moves come after months of demands by the U.S. and its allies to clean up the electoral process following massive fraud in last year’s presidential balloting. Without meeting those demands, the Afghan government risked losing both funds for an upcoming parliamentary vote and broader international support. Disagreements about how to handle last year’s fraud-marred presidential vote nearly derailed the U.S.-Afghan partnership, even as President Barack Obama was ordering thousands more U.S. troops to try to turn back the Taliban. Many international diplomats and officials have been worried that parliamentary elections scheduled for September could prove similarly disastrous.

100,000 person Mass held for Polish crash victims

Some 100,000 Poles filled Warsaw’s biggest public square yesterday, joining together for a memorial and funeral Mass for the 96 people killed in a plane crash a week earlier. The thickening cloud of volcanic ash over Europe caused some world leaders — including Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper — to cancel plans to attend Sunday’s state funeral, but the number of expected no-shows so far was less than 20. The crowd in Pilsudski Square waved white-and-red Polish flags with black ribbons of mourning affixed to them. A massive white stage, a large cross in the center, was flanked by oversized photos of the dead, including President Lech Kaczynski. The names of the dead were read aloud, starting with the president and his wife, Maria, while Marta, their only child, and Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the president’s twin brother and former prime minister, looked on. Others at the service included former President Lech Walesa, Prime Minister Donald Tusk and acting presi[See THE UPDATE, page 11]

Supreme leader calls the kettle black

Iran’s supreme leader told a nuclear disarmament conference in Tehran yesterday that the United States’ atomic weapons are a tool of terror and intimidation. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said America deceptively calls for non-proliferation while holding on to its own weapons and failing to confront Israel, which is widely believed to have nuclear bombs. The two-day conference appeared timed as a counterweight to President Barack Obama’s 47-nation summit in Washington last week to discuss nuclear security. Obama did not invite Iran, which the U.S. fears is using a civilian nuclear program as cover to develop a weapons capability. Iran denies that and says its nuclear work is only for peaceful purposes such as power generation. “The deceptive policy by the sole nuclear offender, which falsely claims to be advocating the non-proliferation of nuclear arms while doing nothing substantive for this cause, will never succeed,” Khamenei said.

Shuttle Discovery coming home

Discovery and its crew left the International Space Station yesterday and aimed for a homecoming in two days to wrap up one of the last missions of NASA’s storied shuttle program. The space station residents were “really, really sad” to see their friends go. “But it’s time,” said Oleg Kotov, the station’s Russian skipper. “We enjoyed every minute of it,” shuttle commander Alan Poindexter said as Discovery backed away. “Thanks for the great hospitality.” Discovery undocked as the two spacecraft soared nearly 220 miles above New Guinea. Poindexter and his crew will spend today getting their ship ready for re-entry. Landing is scheduled for Monday morning.

Somnolence saves girl caught in Chinese quake

Her roommates used to call her a “lazy pig” for trying to sleep in before class. But it was Song Yuhuan’s slowness to get out of bed that saved her life — the girls who rushed from their dorm were crushed by the walls collapsing in an earthquake that leveled their town and left 1,484 dead. Song was trapped briefly by Wednesday morning’s quake, a leg and arm pinned under a wall of the thirdfloor room. Instead of panicking, she felt a steely calm as the others around her screamed. “Stop screaming,” she told them, “and I’ll get out

first and then I’ll help you.” An aftershock a few minutes later allowed her to slip free. But three of her seven roommates died, and a fourth was still missing. Officials say more than 40 of her classmates at the Minorities Vocational School died, and at least 103 students in this remote Tibetan corner of western China were killed.

Recanting Cuban revolutionary dead at 89

Cuban writer and political activist Carlos Franqui, an important figure in the Cuban revolution who later became one of the most outspoken critics of Fidel Castro, has died. He was 89. Franqui died Friday in Puerto Rico after a brief hospitalization for bronchial and heart problems, according to family friend Andres Calendario. The son of a poor farmer, Franqui entered leftist political movements as a youth, joined and left the Communist Party and became a journalist who eventually joined Castro’s rebellion against dictator Fulgencio Batista. He edited the movement newspaper Revolucion before and after Castro’s insurgents defeated Batista, but increasingly clashed with hard-liners who were restricting cultural and political dissent. When Russia invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968 he officially renounced his involvement with the Communist Party.

Return your library books… or run for President

If George Washington were alive today, he might face a hefty overdue library fine. New York City’s oldest library says one of its ledgers shows that the president has racked up 220 years’ worth of late fees on two books he borrowed, but never returned. One of the books was the “Law of Nations,” which deals with international relations. The other was a volume of debates from Britain’s House of Commons. Both books were due on Nov. 2, 1789. New York Society Library head librarian Mark Bartlett says the institution isn’t seeking payment of the fines, but would love to get the books back. The ledger also lists books being taken out by other founding fathers, including Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr and John Jay. The entry on Washington simply lists the borrower as “president.”

Typo makes for a very racist dish

It’s a tiny misprint, but an Australian publisher has had to pulp a cookbook after one recipe called for “salt and freshly ground black people” to be added to the dish, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. Penguin Group Australia pulped and reprinted about 7,000 copies

[From page 9]

of “Pasta Bible” after the typographical error was found in the ingredients for spelt tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto, the Herald reported yesterday. “We’re mortified that this has become an issue of any kind, and why anyone would be offended, we don’t know,” head of publishing Bob Sessions was quoted as saying. Penguin said in the report that almost every one of the more than 150 recipes in the book called for salt and freshly ground black pepper but a misprint occurred on just one page, probably as a result of a computer’s spellchecker program.

Man calling out hits probably took too many hits

The FBI investigated a tip about a murder plot against Sandra Bullock that was allegedly arranged by Jesse James’ mistress Bombshell McGee -- but the FBI ultimately deemed the tip “not credible,” according to TMZ. Law enforcement sources confirm that roughly two weeks ago, McGee’s ex-husband, Shane Modica, reported that he received a call from a man in Missouri who claimed Bombshell wanted to put a hit on both Modica and Bullock ... and the mystery caller claimed he was the person who was supposed to carry out the hits, repports TMZ. Law enforcement sources confirm that the man in Missouri contacted his local FBI office to inform them about the situation -- and the FBI then contacted the local sheriff’s office. TMZ was told the sheriff’s office told the FBI they had prior run-ins with the Missouri caller -- a person said to have had a head injury that caused him to “lose sense of reality.” Furthermore, authorities have no reason to believe McGee ever contacted the man.

From unemployment to $10,000 an episode

It seems The Situation had no faith in his future as a reality TV star, because after shooting Season 1 of “Jersey Shore” -- he filed for unemployment, according to TMZ. “According to a document, The Sitch -- formally known as Mike Sorrentino -- filed for unemployment in New Jersey on October 25, 2009 ... “Jersey Shore” didn’t premiere until December 3,” reports TMZ. “New Jersey then sent a Request for Separation Information form to the restaurant in Florida where Mike was last employed ... to verify that he was really terminated.” TMZ writes that it’s unclear if he actually received a check -- but seeing as how he’s now pulling in a reported $10,000 an episode for Season 2, it appears his situation has greatly improved. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press
