Fuel stops traffic in Edwards By Joshua Robinson Special to the Mountaineer Remember the early Aughts when gas was so cheap you could fill up your tank for about 18 bucks, remember in the late 70s when you had to wait in line because of the gas shortage. Well, yesterday, at the Shell station in Edwards, there must have been a rift in the spacetime continuum because gas was cheap and the lines

a gallon cost when the Shell station first opened. On average the wait time to fuel up seemed to be about 15 minutes, but for the most part drivers were waiting patiently and happily. Station employees and Eagle County Sheriff officers had to do a little creative traffic directing to keep things running smoothly. They had officers directing traffic since 6 a.m. and a gas attendant directing cars to each individual pump. Officer Lauderdale said, “The wait was better than she expected it to be.” which was a result of all the hard [See FUEL FRENZY, page 9]

Short Track, Quick Fun

BP was confident Saturday its latest attempt to capture much of the oil flowing into the Gulf of Mexico will succeed even as the company disclosed yet another setback in their experiments to curb one of the nation’s worst environmental disasters. BP believes it can hook up its mile-long tube to suck oil from a blown-out well, despite an earlier snag with connecting two pieces of equipment. If successful, it would be the first time the company has captured any of the oil since a rig sank April 22 and millions of gallons of crude started spewing into the ocean. The company also began spraying dispersants beneath the sea Saturday and said the chemicals appears to have reduced the amount of surface oil. The spraying is a contentious development because it has never been done underwater. Technicians have been working since early Friday to insert the tube into an oil pipe a mile beneath the surface using robotic submarines. The tube is intended to suck oil up like a straw to a tanker on the surface, while a stopper surrounding it would keep crude from leaking into the sea.

were 26 cars deep. No one seemed to mind though, because gas was going for $1.95 a gallon. One family came out from Minturn to fill up their two heavy-duty pickup trucks, and ATV’s. As of press time the Shell station at the intersection of Miller Ranch Rd. and Edwards Access Rd. had gone through 3 tankers worth of gas, which can hold between 5,500 gallons and 9,000 gallons of fuel. Chris Dudar, the operations manager for the station, was having the sale in celebration of 10 years of business, so they rolled back gas prices to match the $1.95

Wilderness advocates take flight

EcoFlight provides birds-eye view of Hidden Gems proposal By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Right now, Hidden Gems is our most contentious local issue. But one thing is beyond dispute – those areas are beautiful. Bruce Gordon runs EcoFlight, an air service that specializes in providing passengers a first-hand look at what all the fuss is about. “It gives you perspective and it lets the land speak for itself,”

Gordon said. Gordon is a zealous backer of the Hidden Gems campaign. Advocates want to add 243,000 acres of new wilderness area, 204,000 acres in Eagle County and the rest in Summit County. They sent their proposal to Congressman Jared Polis on March 31, hoping he’ll push it through as a federal bill.

ALLEGEDLY! Joe College needs a spell check By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer EDITOR’S NOTE: Every day or two we take a cruise through some local police reports so we can bring you our favorites. The general theme is two-fold: (1) Sometimes we’re all this silly, and (2) this stuff is funny because it’s not happening to you … this time. Go Joe College: Joe College was rolling merrily along at 65 mph in a 35 mph zone, so a Sheriff’s deputy did what he had to do. As the deputy strolled up to the car, Joe College informed the deputy, “I have a college education!” The deputy wondered if it was some sort of art history or literature degree that kept Joe College from reading and comprehending the numbers on his speedometer. The deputy surmised that even literature majors have to deal with page numbers, so it must be some sort of degree that ends with the word “Studies,” as in “Early Antarctic Populations and How They Keep the Vodka Cold Without Refrigeration Studies.” Joe College stepped from the car and started through the obligatory roadside maneuvers, which he performed poorly. “It’s OK, though, because I have a college education!” Joe College said. As he gathered himself, Joe College declared that while he had no injuries, he did have a college education. He also had been frequenting a couple local libation locations, where he’d passed a few enjoyable hours with some fellow travelers on Spaceship Earth who also have a college education. So the deputy put him in the back of the patrol truck and hauled him to the hospital to take a blood test. Joe College was not about to take a breathalyzer test by the roadside, because breathalyzers are not to be trusted. He learned that in college. The deputy decided that Joe College might have attended a land grant university with an outstanding agricultural

St. Clare of Assisi

9th Annual Charity Golf Classic

education program, because, while they were riding to the hospital for the blood test, Joe College began using technical agricultural terms that suggested the deputy participate in animal husbandry, that the deputy might perform various sorts of reproductive animal husbandry upon himself – which is not physically possible no matter how flexible and limber you might be, and Joe College would have learned that had he been paying attention in class. Joe College asserted that the deputy had been birthed by a female canine and was, in fact, her son – if you know what we mean and we think you do. Then Joe College suggested that the deputy might be part of the genus and species of the Effenheimer Clan, and that this was all a massive load of bovine byproduct. All this helped the deputy make the agricultural connection. The deputy decided that Joe College had not acquired manners during his matriculation, because Joe College was screaming all these profanities at extreme decibel levels while in the hospital emergency room. So, to demonstrate that he too was well read and educated, the deputy quoted the America’s Greatest Humorist, Mark Twain, by calmly saying, “Shut up,” he explained.” Spelling Counts: The Spray Paint Pair rolled through the Edwards Business Center with spray cans, and tagged five different surfaces. The problem is that no one could figure out what they were trying to say. Not only was the lettering illegible, the letters spelled nothing in particular. OK campers, if you’re going to speak out against society’s ills, and a spray can is what will give it voice, you have a moral obligation to scrawl so other people can understand it and read it. All the police could tell is that the same sort of scrawls showed up on five different surfaces and they were all about two feet wide and five inches high. Police are on the lookout for bad spellers with horrible handwriting packing spray cans.

30 years and still delivering Jim Madril celebrates 30 years as Minturn postmaster By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer If Minturn is a mountain Mayberry, and it is, Jim Madril is one of its loveable central characters. Madril just celebrated 30 years as Minturn’s postmaster, 39 years with the Postal Service. “Minturn has changed, along with everything else,” Madril said. “The oldtimers have moved out, and that’s a little sad, but younger people have moved in and that’s good for the future of the community.” Everything has changed, except the great service you get at his post office. In 1971, when he started, a first class stamp was 8 cents, 10 cents for airmail. Stamps are now 44 cents and it’s still the best deal anywhere. Whine and cheese People stick those stamps on some really weird stuff. Like the elderly gentlemen who wanted to mail a block of Velveeta cheese to his daughter. Mailing cheese is not the latest thing. They come through Madril’s post office regularly, but Velveeta? “Can you mark this as perishable?” the man asked. “Why are you mailing her a block of cheese?” Madril asked. “To go with her wine, because all she does is whine, whine, whine.” Years ago they used to get baby chickens in the mail. They were real popular around Easter, but much less popular by Memorial Day when they had grown into honest-to-KFC chickens. He used to get crickets in the mail. Some people in town had lizards, so they fed them the crickets. The way it was People come and go all day. They’re all looking for Jim. They’re all friends, people he has known for decades. He went to school with Ben Chavez. They’ve been best friends since they were too young to get into the sort of things they were getting into, as all kids must. They graduated together in 1965 from Battle Mountain High School. Ben’s son Dan is his godson. Madril’s roots around Minturn stretch for generations. “We were the first class to graduate at Maloit Park,” Madril said, where the school was at the time. As for him, he’s single with two grown daughters. Like so many others, he was born somewhere else and his family migrated to the area when his father went to work in the mines in the triangle of Red Cliff, Gilman and Minturn.

Jim Madril has been Minturn’s postmaster for 30 years, and with the U.S. Postal Service for 39 years. Avery Cunliffe Photo.

While he was still in high school, some people got the hair-brained notion to build a ski area right up the road on Hanson and Jouflas ranchland. Madril was one of those who actually helped build Vail, working construction when everything was still under construction. Falling between the cracks In 1971 he wandered over to the post office and never left, although the post office did – a couple times. The Minturn post office used to be in the Minturn school building, in the back of the cafeteria. When the school was torn down, they moved to a temporary building. On July 9, 2001, the post office opened in its current location. There was a crack between the mail boxes in that old post office. When they were packing to move, Madril found a couple old pieces of mail that fell between those cracks. “Yes, I was curious about what they might be,” Madril said, but it was U.S. mail and it had to get where it was supposed to go. He put a little note on the letters, explaining it all, and delivered them. It takes a team to get things done. Terrie Schuler is on the staff right now, and she’s been great, he says. Schuler need not get any immediate designs on Madril’s postmaster slot. Right now he has no plans to retire, he says. “It’s a good job. The Postal Service has been good to me, and that’s the people who’ve worked for me and the people I’ve worked for. I am proud of my accomplishments. I’ve been happy. I hope I live to be 100.”

Local Lutherans giving building a facelift Gypsum’s First Lutheran collecting donations, supplies By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer The folks of First Lutheran Church in Gypsum understand that God helps those who help themselves. It doesn’t actually say that in the Bible, but when you’re giving your building a facelift, like they are, God wants your hand on the business end of a paint brush or a shovel. For example, Anna-Helena Garberg has run her preschool for 10 years. Two years ago, she moved her school from her home into the fellowship hall of First Lutheran Church in Gypsum. First Lutheran is one of those beautiful, historic buildings that makes you feel like it’s giving you a big hug when you walk in. But it has acquired a little more rust then it should have. So, some of the local Lutherans are getting to work to paint up, fix up and spruce up the building, including the preschool and play areas. It started with a spring cleanup project, but soon turned into much more. “The preschool space is beautiful and sunny, but needs repair and improvement inside and out,” said Melissa Ciocian, who putting together labor and materials for the project. “Once I started taking photographs I realized how much character the building has.” Several local business are already involved: Mountain Painting, the Paint Bucket, Select Surfaces, Eliseo’s Flooring, and B & B. What they don’t get donated, they’ll try to buy. Garberg’s preschool is hosting a garage sale at the end of this month, and they’re looking for donations. Drop them off at the school, at the corner of Eagle and Second streets in Gypsum. Chris Sala of Mountain Painting is out there over the weekend, getting started on painting the building. He doesn’t have kids in the preschool, he just saw that it needed to be done. “We will take pride knowing we have come together as a community for such a worthwhile cause,” she said. Their wish list looks like this: •Paint: Five gallons white/Porter flat exterior acrylic. Five gallons exterior satin Misted Green. •Stain: One gallon semi-transparent oil stain #1852. •Concrete: Concrete slab replacement, 25 feet by 25 feet.

Anna-Helena Garberg’s Red Hill Play school has been Gypsum’s First Lutheran Church for the last two years. The Lutherans are giving their building a facelift and need your help. Photo Special To the Mountaineer.

work from the officers and the station employees, and customers were definitely benefiting. The ECO buses that usually run a route through Freedom Park by Colorado Mountain College had to be rerouted down Highway 6, and then create a new loop up the Edwards Access Road to service all their stops. “We had a deputy over there directing traffic all day,” said Sergeant Chiodo, of Eagle County Law Enforcement. He was amazed at how many people were there “I don’t know how long its gonna last,” he laughed. “Till they run out of gas?” As of press time, the station still had shipments of gas coming in and they planned to stay open until 12 a.m. Sunday morning “We had a good plan in place to deal with the traffic,” said Dudar “Hoping that the weather stays decent, we hope to keep getting shipments up the hill.” One thing is certain; everybody had a gas.

release of thousands of pages of papers in its possession from Elena Kagan’s tenure as a Clinton adviser. Kagan is President Barack Obama’s choice to succeed retiring Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. She currently is the U.S. solicitor general. In a letter to library officials, the White House requested that it expedite release of the material. The papers, which are expected to be released some time this summer, are from Kagan’s tenure as a domestic policy adviser and associate White House counsel. Republican lawmakers seeking clues about what kind of justice Kagan would be want to review them.

Slim hope for another Democratic Congress

People want Democrats to control Congress after this fall’s elections, a shift from April, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll released Saturday. But the margin is thin and there’s a flashing yellow light for incumbents of both parties: Only about one-third want their own lawmakers re-elected. The tenuous 45 percent to 40 percent preference for a Democratic Congress reverses the finding a month ago on the same question: 44 percent for Republicans and 41 percent for Democrats. The new readout came as the economy continued showing signs of improvement and the tumultuous battle over the health care law that President Barack Obama finally signed in March faded into the background. “To the extent that Democrats can focus on job creation rather than health care, they tend to do better,” said Jack Pitney, a political scientist at California’s Claremont McKenna College. Democrats hold a 254-177 majority over Republicans in the House, with four vacancies, while Democrats control 59 of the Senate’s 100 seats, counting support from two independents. Despite those disadvantages, the GOP has gained political momentum in recent months and its leaders hope to win control of at least one chamber of Congress this November.

Pakistan sees missile attacks as ‘violation’ of sovereignty

A suspected U.S. missile strike killed at least five people in the Khyber tribal region of northwest Pakistan on Saturday, in what would be one of the first such attacks in the area, intelligence and government officials said. U.S. missiles have regularly pounding al-Qaida and Taliban targets along the Afghan border for two years now. The attacks have killed scores of people, most of them identified as militants by Pakistani officials. But they have caused anger in Pakistan, where many people see them as an unacceptable violation of the country’s sovereignty. The suspected strike in the remote Teerah Valley of Khyber could fan fresh anger because it represented a widening of the covert program. Officials gave differing death tolls in the strike, which one said involved two missiles hitting a house and two trucks loaded with militants. The death toll ranged from 5 to 15. Such discrepancies are common and are rarely reconciled.

ISS must contend with very dangerous trash

A snagged cable forced Atlantis’ astronauts to resort to a more inconvenient and less comprehensive method of inspecting their space shuttle Saturday as they sped toward a weekend rendezvous with the International Space Station. Mission Control, meanwhile, was monitoring a piece of space junk that was threatening to come too close to the space station. The debris was projected to pass within six miles of the complex this morning, shortly after the shuttle’s scheduled arrival. Flight director Mike Sarafin said the estimated gap was right at the allowable limit, and noted that even a small error in

determining the location and timing of the junk could have dire consequences. Experts did not know how big the object was or where it originated. Its extreme egg-shaped orbit — taking it from thousands of miles above the space station to just below it — made it especially difficult to track.

Australian teen contends with world’s oceans

A 16-year-old Australian who braved boat knockdowns and seven months of solitude on a sail around the world set foot on dry land outside the Sydney Opera House on Saturday and quickly set an earthier goal: getting her driver’s license. Jessica Watson became the youngest person to sail around the globe solo, nonstop and unassisted when she cruised into Sydney Harbour in her pink, 34-foot (10-meter) yacht to a rock star welcome of thousands. She successfully maneuvered her boat through raging storms, 40-foot (12-meter) waves and seven knockdowns during the 23,000 nautical mile journey that critics thought she wouldn’t survive. After standing on land for the first time in 210 days, the teen said she’s eager to learn how to drive a car, to eat fresh fruit and salad after months of packaged meals, get a full night’s sleep instead of catnaps and shake off her sea legs with a long walk —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press on the beach..

Hidden Gems advocates Bruce Gordon and Susie Kincade prepare to take a group flying over the proposed Hidden Gems wilderness areas. Kincade coordinates the Hidden Gems campaign in Eagle County, and Gordon runs EcoFlight, an environmental advocacy and education organization. Randy Wyrick photo

Love it or hate it Polis is hosting a series of public hearings the first week of June to give the public their say. Some say they don’t like it. White River National Forest Supervisor Scott Fitzwilliams doesn’t, saying it’s not necessary, that the land is already protected and does not need to be wilderness. The White River Forest Alliance, a completely volunteer organization, disagrees with almost everything about it and has vowed to fight it. Some say they love it. Gordon does. And the debate continues. “I’ve been doing conservation flying for 25 years,” said Gordon, who has logged more than 9,000 hours as a pilot. “As we keep debating the issue, industry and others are not debating. They’re using the land as they want.” Gordon loaded his Cessna 210 with a group of curious people and flew over the proposed wilderness areas in Eagle County. “The longer we debate these parcels, the smaller the unspoiled parcels will become, and pretty soon they’re gone,” Gordon said. Humans go everywhere From the air, the differences are stark between where humans have been and where we haven’t. Trails criss-cross the more easily accessible public land, near towns and communities. In wilderness areas, or areas the Forest Service is already managing as wilderness, there’s little or no sign of human activity. “Those are the evidence of human pressures,” said Susie Kincade, who’s coordinating the Hidden Gems campaign in Eagle County. “Humans will go everywhere. People look at a road and wonder where it goes. Then we have another illegal road.” Kincade says wilderness advocates want to protect mid-elevation areas, below the high altitude rock and ice areas but above the valley floors. Wilderness designation would prohibit motorized and mechanical access, something motorized users say they will not abide. Still, Kincade says they’re working with snowmobilers and other user groups, trying to accommodate as many people as possible. “We’re trying to make sure our children and their children have the clean water and environment that these unspoiled areas provide,” she says.
