Construction begins on Eagle BMX track Only BMX track between Denver and Grand Junction should be ready by mid May By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer In a valley filled with adrenalineseekers, Eagle is a perfect place to open up a BMX track. Construction began Monday on the town’s latest attraction, the only BMX track between Denver and Grand Junction, which called for 200 truckloads or 2000 yards of dirt. The track’s visionary and operator Jay Lucas, owner of Wheel Base in Lionshead, has been working in conjunction with the town of Eagle and Spiegel Construction and Excavation, which donated the use of two trucks and a frontloaded. Lucas said that the track should be operational by mid May with weekly

races for kids and adults every Sunday, the first of which will be free so that participants can try a new sport. Races are $10 thereafter, but general use of the track is free and open to the public. Racers are encouraged ride BMX bikes, but Lucas says traditional mountain bikes are just fine also. They hope to also have full-face helmets on loan, which are required to ride the track.

Frogs announce CD release party

Local jam band heading home after New Orleans Jazz Fest By Geoff Mintz Mountaineer Staff Writer The Valley’s favorite funky jam band Frogs Gone Fishin’ has announced the release party for their new CD will be May 8 in Vail. The Frogs have been touring all over the Midwest and Deep South this spring. They’re currently planning a raucous week for Jazz Fest in New Orleans April 23 to May 2. “We have been having an amazing

time in NOLA,” said guitarist Andrew Portwood. “We had CR Gruver and the Dirty Note horns join us on stage at the Maple Leaf Bar, which was amazing. It’s great leading up to Jazz Fest.” Portwood and the rest of Frogs have been frequenting The Big Easy for years, not simply for the good times, but because there is something about the city’s “ju ju” that has inspired them to compose some of their best music, they say. “I have written four songs since I have been down here, and people are definite-

ly digging the songs from the upcoming album ‘Actual Natural’, said Portwood. “We are spreading the Colorado love with our South Park inspired posters.” The Actual Natural Tour, which coincides with the release of their second album of the same name, has taken the up-and-coming jam band to places like Chicago, Minneapolis, Nebraska, Atlanta and finally New Orleans aboard their trusty, newly acquired 23-year-old RV, Bertha.

Daily Congregations add another Lunch free weekly community supper Specials

Monday: Classic Reuben Tuesday: French Dip Wednesday: Philly Cheese Steak Thursday: Gyro Melt Friday: Grilled Portabello Grand Ave. & 4th, Eagle • 328.1234

Five local congregations are teaming with the Salvation Army to offer a free community supper in Edwards. Trinity Church will host the gathering. They’re located at the top of Bull Run Road in Edwards, off Highway 6 just past the business center heading east. It runs 6-7 p.m. This meal is for anyone in need. They need groups and volunteers to help with meal preparation and serving. “We know there is a critical need for food due to the increased demands on the Salvation Army food pantry,” said Steve Baird, organizer of this project and member of the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration. “We need to offer a mid-valley opportunity to supplement the other programs at the Presbyterian Church in Avon and the Methodist Church in Eagle.” There are now free dinners in the valley on Monday (Eagle), Wednesday (Avon) and Thursday (Edwards) evenings. The Episcopal Church is one of the four congregations currently building the Edwards Interfaith Chapel and Community Center on Highway 6 in Edwards. The

other congregations participating include the Mt. of the Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Covenant Presbyterian Church and B’nai Vail Jewish Congregation. Once the Edwards Interfaith Chapel and Community Center in Edwards is completed this fall, the community supper will move to that location. The Vail Valley Salvation Army provides emergency assistance and promotes self-sufficiency. “We’re here to help people who’ve hit a rough patch,” said Dan Smith, chairman of the Salvation Army board of directors. The Vail Valley Salvation Army’s overall goal is to stabilize living conditions by providing food, shelter and housing, utility assistance and basic needs for families and individuals who are in an emergency situation and temporarily unable to provide for themselves. To get to Trinity Church in Edwards, get off I-70 at the Edwards exit, #163, and head south to Highway 6, turn left and head east on Hwy 6 to Bull Run Road on your right (just past the Edwards Business Center). Follow Bull Run Road to the top. For more information, to volunteer or to donate to the cause, call the Salvation Army at 926-3704.

Eagle County Commissioners recognize National Volunteers Week yesterday and honor local volunteers. The middle schools students in this group are from Eagle County Charter Academy. They volunteer thousands of hours in all kinds of character-building places. Randy Wyrick photo.

How ’bout them Vols? Local volunteers log tens of thousands of hours By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Americans volunteer more than 9 billion hours every year. We’re the good guys. Locally, volunteers fanning out just from countyrelated programs roll up more than 20,000 hours. It’s important because they do great work, and because they do necessary work that someone would have to be paid to perform if they didn’t. Those 20,000 hours don’t account for the hundreds of thousands of hours volunteers log across the valley. It’s fitting that a some of them were honored yesterday as the county commissioners recognized National Volunteer Week. Food for Backpacks Take Toni Berns, for instance. She came up with another good cause to champion, her Food for Backpacks programs. Berns picks up kids’ backpacks from local schools on Thursdays, and packs them full of enough food for the weekend. That’s three meals a day until they return to school on Monday. “When kids show up on Monday, they need to be alert and ready to learn,” Berns said. “That cannot happen if they don’t have the nutrition they need before they show up for class.” Berns has been running programs like this for decades. She was once working in a Vail Village restaurant and started a program to pick up leftover food from Vail Valley restaurants, put it in sealed containers and hauled it to homeless shelters. The Food for Backpacks program is more local in scope. The students are usually referred by a guidance counselor in their school, and often participate in the free/reduced lunch program. In the volunteer universe, money makes their world go around. They apply for grants of every conceivable type, Berns said. They’ll be doing a food drive later this

month. Berns is developing a sponsorship program to help students. “That aim is to get private individuals to sponsor a student for a month or a school year,” Berns said. The program has been wildly successful. “It’s mind boggling the response we get. It’s important to these kids,” Berns said. “They are the future of this country and we need to keep them going in the right direction.” Riding the Magic Bus Louise Willimann volunteers with the Magic Bus program, working with Maria Calvo. You’ve seen the Magic Bus. It’s big and brightly colored. They drive it from neighborhood to neighborhood, helping little kids get ready for kindergarten. Some of it’s simple stuff – how to hold a pencil, how to handle scissors. Some of it’s not so simple – how to sit still and pay attention to directions, and how to follow those directions. “Once the kids hit school, they’re ready to learn, instead of trying to catch up,” Willimann said. The Magic Bus program is run by The Youth Foundation and the Vail Valley Foundation. The organizations just set the second Magic Bus in motion. Start ‘em young Speaking of kids, a group of 7th and 8th graders from the Eagle County Charter Academy were also in the room, being honored for the volunteer work they do. The ECCA middle schoolers do can drives, volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, ring the bell for the Salvation Army during its Christmas fund drive, volunteer at the World Vision Center in Denver to pack clothes and other items into boxes to be shipped, work with SOS Outreach/Meet the Wilderness. They even pick up trash and recyclable materials. “Youth who volunteer turn out to be adults who volunteer,” said Holly Kasper, the county’s volunteer coordinator.

Vonn presents award at ACMs Vail ski champ joined onstage by country star Joe Nichols Olympic champion and Vail resident Lindsey Vonn is used to being nominated and winning awards, but presenting one – especially on live television – was an entirely new experience as Vonn and country music star Joe Nichols awarded the Academy of Country Music Awards Single Record of the Year to Lady Antebellum Sunday night in Las Vegas. Vonn was thrilled to be honored as a presenter at the 2010 ACMs, but didn’t know what she’d be presenting until just an hour to curtain. Though just as quick in her high heels as in ski boots, the Olympic gold medalist practiced the script a few times back stage with Nichols, then nailed the performance. “I was so excited to be there that it didn’t matter what I was presenting, but they literally changed it around at the last minute. Joe and I did a few test runs back stage and then just went for it,” said Vonn. “He was such a nice guy it was such an honor to present such a prestigious award to Lady Antebellum, who ultimately won three other awards that night. It was a cool experience.” According to critics, namely teammate and fellow Olympian Stacey Cook, Vonn put on a gold medal performance. “Stacey texted me right after and said I did a good job, so I’m taking that as plus,” said Vonn, who added that she’s getting more and more used to walking in high heels. “Stacey is probably one of the biggest fans of country music there is – definitely the biggest on our team – so getting a positive review from her was better than any critic.” In addition to the red carpet experience, something she’s been a part of before at both the ESPY and Emmy Awards, Vonn said evening highlights also included meeting ACM host Reba McEntire, LL Cool J and seeing 2010 Entertainer of the Year Carrie Underwood perform with Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert. “The performances were absolutely incredible, especially Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a concert and I’d be lucky if every show I went to was as high energy as this one,” said Vonn. “Thomas [Vonn] said Taylor Swift’s performance was amazing, but unfortunately I was still backstage and missed it. There’s always next year, I’m sure she’ll be back and hopefully so will I.” Athletically, Vonn said things are healing up nicely and that she’ll be back to training fulltime in the next month to begin preparation for the 2011 World Cup season, which includes World Championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany in February. “I haven’t done too much training since the season ended which has been pretty nice and is allowing my body to completely heal. It’s also been incredible to travel around so much and take advantage of oppor-

tunities like the CMA’s,” said Vonn, who will be in Washington DC later this week for the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner. She will make her acting debut on the May 24 episode of Law and Order, a segment she filmed with NBC early April in New York City. “It’s been a different spring, that’s for sure,” said Vonn. “At the ACM’s it was cool having famous singers asking to have their picture taken with me. Usually it’s the other way around. Filming with Law and Order was really cool and I’m looking forward to going to the dinner in Washington, D.C. It’s just cool to have so many opportunities that a skier might normally not have. It’s been a fun spring.”

shot at Google’s Android operating system, saying that’s where people looking for porn should go. “Jobs’ remark came from an e-mail he apparently sent to an Apple customer who was concerned about Apple’s practice of not approving some apps that it finds objectionable,” reports the Chronicle. “Jobs told the customer that cases like the December rejection of an app by Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Mark Fiore was a ‘mistake,’ but that porn won’t find a home in the Apple App Store.” “Fiore’s app will be in the store shortly. That was a mistake,” Jobs wrote in the e-mail shared with TechCrunch and reported by the Chronicle. “However, we do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone. Folks who want porn can buy and (sic) Android phone.”

For profits go to Apple

Apple says its net income in the most recent quarter jumped 90 percent, helped by strong iPhone and Macintosh computer sales. Its results blew past Wall Street’s expectations. Apple Inc. says it sold nearly 9 million of its popular smart phones in the three months that ended March 27, more than double sales from a year ago. The company sold almost 3 million Macs, a 33 percent increase. IPod unit sales edged down 1 percent — but Apple still sold 10 million of the digital players. Apple says it earned $3.07 billion, or $3.33 per share. Revenue rose 49 percent to $13.5 billion. Analysts expected Apple to earn $2.45 per share on $12.04 billion in revenue.

Obama heading back for Boxer

A White House official says President Barack Obama will return to California next month to help raise money for Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer and other candidates. Obama spent Monday night in Los Angeles after headlining a trio of fundraisers for Boxer and the Democratic National Committee. The events were expected to raise at least $3 million for the senator and the DNC. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the White House has not formally announced the trip, which is planned for late May. Boxer’s campaign said Obama will attend a joint fundraiser in the San Francisco Bay Area for the senator and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Airports reactivating, but Icelandic volcano might too

Even as Europe’s dormant airports sputter back to life, prudent travelers and businessmen should ask: What if Iceland’s volcano erupts again? Because it might. Over and over again, for weeks, perhaps months, scientists say. The last eruption from the Eyjafjallajoekull volcano in 1821 lasted off-and-on for 13 months — but back then there were no jet engines to get clogged by ash. What should the world brace for if ash clouds waft over Europe intermittently for six months or a year, repeatedly closing airports with just a few hours’ warning? A devastated tourist industry. Less out-of-season produce at supermarkets. Businesses forced to improvise. And higher prices on just about everything. Europe’s recovery from the economic recession likely would be set back to zero. Banks and governments, worried about runaway inflation, could tighten credit. Railways and roads would be overloaded with freight and people [See THE UPDATE, pages 8-9]

Lucas said they’re planning on sending a “track shaper” someone who specializes in building BMX tracks. Lucas, 44, said he got into BMX racing when he was eight years old. “The sport has been around since 1977. The races started in California and made their way East,” Lucas said yesterday. “It’s a huge sport now. It became an Olympic sport in 1998.” Eagle will serve as a central location for riders in Summit County, Glenwood Springs and Aspen, in addition to Eagle County. “In Colorado we have 13 tracks,” said Lucas. “Eagle gives us an ideal location because we have a big population between Glenwood Spring and Summit County. With all the people we have around here that ride mountain bikes and dirt bikes, it’s just a natural fit for our community.”

The White House offered a tepid response Tuesday to word that President Obama’s former White House counsel is now representing Goldman Sachs as the giant financial firm responds to allegations that it defrauded investors, reports The New York Times. “I’m not going to characterize the White House’s feelings on jobs that members of the administration take after they’ve left the administration,” Bill Burton, a White House spokesman, told reporters from the Times aboard Air Force One as Mr. Obama returned to Washington from a California fund-raising trip. Greg Craig, one of Washington’s most prominent lawyers, was a top adviser to Mr. Obama during his campaign and went on to serve as White House counsel but then left after a year of tension over issues like closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, reports the New York Times. He went to Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, which has long represented Goldman, reports the Times and the financial firm engaged him to advise it on litigation strategy before the Securities and Exchange Commission filed its civil suit last week.

Issa seeks SEC-Goldman records

Republicans and banking lobbyists questioned the timing of the SEC lawsuit against Goldman. In a letter being sent Tuesday to the SEC, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., asked the agency to explain why the case was filed as the financial regulations bill was pending. “It must be nice for Democrats that the SEC’s filing against Goldman Sachs so conveniently fits into their political agenda,” said Issa, the top Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. He noted that an Internet search of “Goldman Sachs” provides a link to Democratic National Committee Internet ad urging passage of new financial regulations. The DNC has used technological tools that link key search words to their ads. The financial regulation ad went up after the SEC filed its lawsuit. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs denied any coordination with the SEC, an independent regulatory agency. “The SEC doesn’t notify the White House of its enforcement actions, and certainly didn’t do so in this case,” he said.

Democrats back to negotiating table on financial bill

as a ticket to new taxpayer “bailouts,” McConnell is striking a different tone. Monday on the Senate floor, in the Post’s article, he called for lawmakers to move beyond “personal attacks and questioning each others’ motives” to “fixing the problems in this bill.” And McConnell conceded, after being chastised by no less than President Obama in his weekly radio address, that “both parties agree on this point: no bailouts. In my view, that’s a pretty good start.” Yesterday McConnell returned to the chamber and announced he was “heartened to hear that bipartisan talks have resumed in earnest.” Senate Democratic leaders are preparing to bring the overhaul bill to the floor as early as tomorrow, but all 41 Republicans have signed a letter stating their opposition to the bill in its current form, reports the Post. Unless Democrats can peel off at least one GOP senator to allow debate to proceed, a GOP-led filibuster could block financial regulatory reform indefinitely, according to the report.

Stepson of Catherine Zeta-Jones gets five years

A judge sentenced Michael Douglas’ son, Catherine Zeta-Jones step-son, on drug charges to five years in prison yesterday , calling it his “last chance to make it.” U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman announced the sentence after hearing 31-year-old Cameron Douglas apologize with his father in court, admitting that he had squandered a lot of opportunities to turn his life around. Early in a sentencing hearing that stretched more than an hour, the judge said he was not confident that Douglas would turn his back on drugs after pleading guilty in January to charges that he dealt large quantities of methamphetamine and cocaine. He noted that he had read at least 37 letters from family, friends and supporters who “believe he has finally bottomed out in terms of his addiction and may be ready to turn his life around.” Berman, though, said: “In my estimation, that will be a very difficult chore. I think this case and this sentencing may well be his last chance to make it.”

Supreme Court decides 8-1 on animal cruelty videos

The Supreme Court, with only one dissenting vote, yesterday struck down a federal ban on videos that show graphic violence against animals. The ruling cheered free speech advocates, but it raised concerns that more animals will be harmed. The justices threw out the criminal conviction of Robert Stevens of Pittsville, Va., who was sentenced to three years in prison for videos he made about pit bull fights. The law was enacted in 1999 to limit Internet sales of so-called crush videos, which appeal to a certain sexual fetish by showing women crushing to death small animals with their bare feet or high-heeled shoes. The videos virtually disappeared once the measure became law, the government argued. The Bush adminis-


[From page 6]

tration used the law for the first time when it indicted Stevens in 2004. All 50 states have laws against animal cruelty, but the federal statute targeted the videos because it has been difficult to prosecute people who take part in violence against animals with a camera rolling, but not showing their faces.

The suspect follows Jordan as he walks out the door. “The next thing I know, I’m spun around. I see this kid, his rear end almost on the ground, and he’s pulling it out of my hand. I just remember seeing this kid pulling and pulling and pulling till it got caught. Took the flesh right off and the tendons and everything. There was nothing but bone,” Jordan said to Fox. The surveillance tape shows, according to Fox, the suspect, apparently a black male, rushing out another door as Jordan holds his hand in pain. Jordan reportedly said he wants the suspect caught. “It could easily happen to somebody else because this guy obviously had no regard for people or this lives and will strike again.”

Pass the salt ... while you can

The Food and Drug Administration is planning an unprecedented effort to gradually reduce the salt consumed each day by Americans, saying that less sodium in everything from soup to nuts would prevent thousands of deaths from hypertension and heart disease, reports the Washington Post. The initiative in the report, to be launched this year, would eventually lead to the first legal limits on the amount of salt allowed in food products. Officials have not determined the salt limits. In a complicated undertaking, the FDA would analyze the salt in spaghetti sauces, breads and thousands of other products that make up the $600 billion food and beverage market, sources said in the Post’s report. Working with food manufacturers, the government would set limits for salt in these categories, designed to gradually ratchet down sodium consumption, according to the Post.

Larry King, baseball and longevity

A baseball coach who mentored Larry King’s kids has revealed he’s the reason for the newsman’s marriage troubles - because he briefly romanced the TV personality’s wife, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. In a taped interview with news show Entertainment Tonight, which will air tonight, Hector Penate reportedly reveals what started with a stolen kiss in a car became a full-blown affair. And he insists in the Chronicles’ report that King’s wife Shawn Southwick talked to him about divorcing the CNN anchorman “all the time.” He adds in the report, “(She said) Don’t worry he’s gonna die soon.” King and Southwick both filed divorce papers last week and they are currently in coun[See THE UPDATE, page 15]

Rockies prez dies at 48

Colorado Rockies president Keli McGregor is pictured behind home plate before a spring training baseball game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Tucson, Ariz., on March 31, 2010. McGregor was found dead in a hotel room yesterday in Salt Lake City. AP photo.

Keli McGregor, Colorado Rockies president, was found dead in his hotel room yesterday in Salt Lake City. Police were called to The Grand America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City at about 9 a.m. MDT. Emergency workers arrived on the scene but were unable to revive him. “There are no signs of foul play. … Based on the initial investigation did not see anything suspicious,” Wall said. “There is nothing suspicious. At this point it would look like it was some sort of a natural cause or something along those lines.” Wall said the investigation has been turned over to the medical examiner’s office, which will determine the cause and time of death. “Words cannot describe the level of shock and disbelief that we all are feeling this morning at the loss of Keli,” Charlie Monfort said in a statement. “Our thoughts, our prayers are with Lori and the entire family as we all try to cope and understand how such a tragic loss could occur with such a wonderful man.” McGregor parlayed a lifelong love of sports into a short stint in the NFL before embarking on a career in the baseball business. He is survived by his wife, Lori, three daughters and a son.

No. 1 female golfer Lorena Ochoa retires Mexican golf star Lorena Ochoa is retiring, a shocking blow to a struggling LPGA Tour. Ochoa, probably the best-known athlete in Mexico who is not a soccer player, announced her surprise decision yesterday and said in a statement she will discuss her plans for the future on Friday. Ochoa married last year, setting off speculation she might be putting golf aside to raise a family. She has been No. 1 in the world the last three years and won 27 times over the last six. “Lorena Ochoa confirms her retirement from the LPGA, as news reports in some media have said today,” her statement said. “The reasons and more details on the matter will be given by Lorena personally in a press conference on Friday in Mexico City. Lorena will share this news of a new stage in her life with her sponsors, family members and friends.” At 28, many find a comeback in a couple years very likely. Ochoa has 27 LPGA Tour wins and is one of the sport’s great ambassadors. As the first Mexican golfer of either gender to be ranked number one in the world, she is considered the best Mexican golfer of all time. The LPGA will not comment until Friday’s news conference.

Lorena Ochoa tees off on the second hole during the final round of the Navistar LPGA Classic golf tournament at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Ochoa, 28, the No. 1-ranked female golfer in the world, announced her retirement from the game yesterday in a short statement. She said she will discuss more on Friday. AP photo.

fore last year’s Giro d’Italia. A date for the hearing has not yet been set. Pfannberger had previously been suspended for two years for elevated testosterone levels in 2004. NADA said Tuesday it is now investigating whether Pfannberger also used blood doping and sold illegal performance-enhancing products to other athletes.


Pfannberer has always denied any wrongdoing. He is a two-time national champion, who had his best season in 2008, finishing fifth in Liege-Bastogne-Liege, sixth in the Amstel Gold Race and eighth at the road world championships in Varese, Italy.


Astana’s Vinokourov wins Giro del Trentino opener

Now until Sat. May 1st

Alexandre Vinokourov, who rides with Alberto Contador on Tean Astana, stormed to a convincing time trial victory in the opening stage of the Giro del Trentino at Lake Garda on the shores of Italy. The Kazakh rider charged round the 12.5km circuit 16 seconds faster than Stefano Garzelli of Acqua & Sapone. It is the fourth win for Vinokourov since he returned last year from a two-year doping ban. The second stage of the four-day race is a 172.5km route from Dro to San Martino di Castrozza.

Hendricks bumps Fox from No. 1 spot

“Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks has reportedly beaten the competition to be crowned the hottest woman alive by Esquire magazine, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The curvy actress is said to have scored 30 per cent of the vote in a readers’ poll, landing her first place and a cover shoot for the men’s magazine, according to the report. Hendricks was closely followed by Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima in second, while “Transformers” actress Megan Fox was in third, according to JustJared. com. Esquire editors will confirm the results of their poll in an upcoming issue of the magazine.

GOP wants to bump Crist

Plan A isn’t working so well for Gov. Charlie Crist, a former rising Republican star who now trails badly in the Florida Senate primary, but Plans B, C and D don’t look much better. His populist approach to governing no longer sits well with angry conservatives who have abandoned him in favor of his primary opponent, former state House speaker Marco Rubio. The Aug. 24 primary is four months away, but a recent poll showed him behind by 23 points. This week the 53-year-old governor said he may quit the GOP and run as an independent. Asked yesterady how he could consider an independent run after saying for weeks he would run as a Republican, Crist responded, “Things change.”

Nation’s capitol copies Edwards

The D.C. Council unanimously approved a bill yesterday to allow chronically ill patients to receive a doctor’s prescription to use marijuana and buy it from a city-sanctioned distribution center, reports The Washington Post. Under the bill, which passed without debate according to the report, a patient who suffers from HIV, glaucoma, cancer or a “chronic and lasting disease” may receive a doctor’s recommendation to possess up to 2 ounces of marijuana in a 30-day period.

UN Haiti budget: 2/3 to staff; 1/3 to Haitians

The United Nations has quietly upped this year’s peacekeeping budget for earthquake-shattered Haiti to $732.4 million, with two-thirds of that amount going for the salary, perks and upkeep of its own personnel, not residents of the devastated island, writes reporter George Russell, citing a U.N. budget document. The world organization plans to spend the money on an expanded force of some 12,675 soldiers and police, plus some 479 international staffers, 669 international contract

personnel, and 1,300 local workers, just for the 12 months ending June 30, 2010, according to the report. “Some $495.8 million goes for salaries, benefits, hazard pay, mandatory R&R allowances and upkeep for the peacekeepers and their international staff support,” reports Russell. “Only about $33.9 million, or 4.6 percent, of that salary total is going to what the U.N. calls ‘national staff’ attached to the peacekeeping effort.” In addition to the allotted budget, the BBC reports that more than 9 billion dollars of private donations have been offered to the U.N. to help the struggling nation rebuild.

Civil rights pioneer dead at 98

Dorothy I. Height, 98, a founding matriarch of the American civil rights movement whose crusade for racial justice and gender equality spanned more than six decades, died yesterday at Howard University Hospital, reports The Washington Post, the cause of death was not disclosed. “Ms. Height was among the coalition of African American leaders who pushed civil rights to the center of the American political stage after World War II, and she was a key figure in the struggles for school desegregation, voting rights, employment opportunities and public accommodations in the 1950s and 1960s,” writes the Post.

Divorce can be complicated in Texas

After the joy of a wedding and the adoption of a baby came arguments that couldn’t be resolved, leading Angelique Naylor to file for divorce. That left her fighting both the woman she married in Massachusetts and the state of Texas, which says a union granted in a state where same-sex marriage is legal can’t be dissolved with a divorce in a state where it’s not. A judge in Austin granted the divorce, but Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is appealing the decision. He also is appealing a divorce granted to a gay couple in Dallas, saying protecting the “traditional definition of marriage” means doing the same for divorce. A state appeals court is scheduled to hear arguments in the Dallas case today.

Burger King goes brunchy with mimosas
